Long before blasting into space, rockets were used here on Earth as early as the 13th century. What are your thoughts on their use throughout history?

Space science is an important part of modern science and is the part that many people are investing in for development. Spacecraft is needed above all else to explore the universe, and because the universe is far more uncharted than we can simply imagine, spacecraft production must be more meticulous and sure than others. I want to go to space by spaceship.

I feel like sad knowing that the continuing discovery of space is endless and I couldn't able to see how far it would be just bcoz of our short lifetime.

The mere fact that mankind is leaving the Earth and heading into faraway space through a spacecraft, the total collection of human science and technology, makes your heart overflow. I want to be an aerospace engineer and join the project to make a spaceship. Wouldn't one day mankind be able to reach another planet?

When is rocket 102 coming? Moon landing was faked. 2:18 Don't you think that explanation is lacking just a bit? I mean.. I can say: "A laser pointer takes batteries. It's sophisticated systems creates the laser beam"

I'm just wondering why you used the German v-2 rocket as your demonstration model, it never orbited the Earth and it was a weapon during World War II that Hitler used on England and the allies.

The narrator didn't speak well as before, also the role of the Germans (1939 - 1945) in the development of the missile was ignored . No reference to Wernher von Braun ( NASA engineering program manager - chief architect of the Apollo - Saturn V rocket ) ?!? 🚀

But doesn’t that make air pollution because that’s a lot of fuel
FromNorway (2 months ago)
A few long-distance flights with an A380 or B747 pollute just as much as a single Saturn V launch – and the Saturn V was only launched 13 times in total between 1967 and 1973.

Tudo o que envolva universo ...Os álibis moram aqui?? Podemos convencer-nos que a evolução dos foguetes ...trouxe uma nova ordem ao mundo com viagens ...enraizar numa curiosidade compulsiva para ir mais longe!! A contribuição para um fim e um destino cósmico ...serão os foguetes impulsionados para um salto maior para a humanidade ...por urgência?? ou serão por conhecimento de e para uma nova Ca(u)sa?? sem ser o turismo espacial? A história é longa ...ainda nos falta muito para viajar além fronteiras ...Se encontramos uma Ca(u)sa terão os foguetes capacidade de lá chegar??

Mysorean rocket ( tipu sultan) were an Indian military weapon which were first iron cased rockets successfully deployed for military use against british east india company.These battles exposed the british to this technology, which was then used to develop congreve rocket in 1805

What are the alternative fuel we can use on rockets? Anyone?
Alex Siemers (2 months ago)
To launch into orbit, I don’t think there’s any decent alternative to chemical rockets. We have iron engines and nuclear thermal rockets, but those only perform well outside the atmosphere
AssaultFlamingo 2.0 (2 months ago)
There's a rocket grade bio-fuel made from algae, and i'd imagine there's some other bio-fuels powerful enough as well, it's just not cost effective yet.

Mimas Impersonator (2 months ago)
@The Lifeline 1- Your grammar is atrocious 2- The Song dynasty could have been using them as early as the tenth century but concrete evidence of rockets by then appears only in the thirteenth century. Mysorean rockets appeared only in the late eighteenth century

YT Experts: Are the guidance sys and payload mixed up during the highlight? I feel like they should be the other way around.
Tobias Winter (2 months ago)
The reason the payload system is above the guidance system is so that it can more easily be ejected once in orbit. One exception to this rule however, is the Space Shuttle, which had the payload sitting in its payload bay in the center of the body.

If it costs so much energy to get off the surface why not sling shot the rocket then activate the rocketz
Alex Siemers (2 months ago)
You’d need to make it both incredibly long (to avoid the rocket being destroyed by g-forces) and with one end outside the atmosphere
AssaultFlamingo 2.0 (2 months ago)
There's definitely better ways to get things out of Earth orbit, the main reason it's not done is more research in material science is still needed to make something strong enough to do it & cost effective.

AssaultFlamingo 2.0 (2 months ago)
@Gordon Jack I understand what you're saying, and yes, we're no where near being able to reach even the relatively close 4.3ly Centauri system. But first you said solar system, and now you're saying galaxy.... We've already left our solar system, NASA's Voyager 1 left our solar system in 2012 i think it was, took 35 years to get there though.
