Ok less blah, it's not rocket science (well it is), more stuff, watch the videos:
Now that is one big rocket. And to think it took 5 of them
Why are they doing this? If they're not intending to use it to put something in space, they're wasting money.
Space Shuttle engines (SSME's) are tiny compared to those!!!
Even the fuel pump on that thing is massive
*Hint- turbine that runs the fuel pump is 55,000 hp
A fine example of technology. But damn, hundreds of thousands of liters of propellant burnt in just a few seconds!

Built with slide rules, horn rimmed glasses, coffee and cigarettes.
But can it run...

And on a single tank
Yup. The hardest was the braking and steering.
NASA has launched Atlas 5 rocket today. Would like to post it here:
Liftoff is always amazing.
