It always amazing to me that ships move. I know how that sounds, but when you realize there are ships big enough to be skyscrapers and they can move 50 miles an hour? Huh.

The Saturn 5 is the most insane by far. It's service thrust was about 7,500,000 Lbs and it's full up thrust was 9,200,000 Lbs. It's takeoff weight was 3,250 Tons. It went from zero to mach 6.5 in 4 minutes. It's payload was 140 tons to orbit. There were 13 of them built. It retired with a perfect launch record. There was one malfunction in a second stage where one of 5 engines failed to start. The control wiring was plugged in wrong and the flight computer shut off the wrong engine. So it shut off the opposite engine to keep it flying straight. On only 3 engines, the rocket performed a 1/4 roll to put the 3 good engines in the flat plane and throttled up to 112% then gimbaled full up and still made orbit, just a little late. (and it did that all by it's self with no ground commands) Insane!

Old Man (3 months ago)
@Ian McGreevy All these years later, No one in the general public even guessed at how "Experimental" most of the early space hardware really was. Until I read Gene Krantz book, "Failure Is Not an Option: Mission Control from Mercury to Apollo 13 and Beyond" where he details all of the day to day struggles and problems the flight directors went through on every launch. A required read for anyone that has space in their blood.

Don Ogoobo you have to be careful with Saturn 5 because it had cluster of engines working together.

Actually, UP's "Big Boy" steam locomotive was *not* the most powerful in regular rail service. The N&W Y6a class, 2-8-8-2, articulated Mallet engines, built in their Roanoke, VA Shops in the 1940's, were much more powerful. Built to haul heavy loads (e.g , coal) up steep grades, they were the Clydesdales of rail and normally ran 35-45 MPH.

@Matthew Statham With the single most powerful rocket engine ever used operationally being the 4 segment space shuttle Solid Rocket Motor. When used in the shuttle SRBs they made 3.05 million pounds/thrust. The newer 5 segment SRB will make approx. 3.8 million pounds thrust.

It is impossible for a machine to be insane: insanity a legal term, not a psychological term. Once the dotard Trump is indicted for high crimes, I'm sure that he will be judged in a court of law as being insane; thus, he will be institutionalized for the rest of his life in a maximum secure mental institution for the criminally insane.

That was fun, thanks. A tiny quibble, car engines over 3 liters are not rare at all. I remember living in the San Fernando Valley in the early 1980's near the eastern end. Rockwell had a rocket engine test facility in the Santa Susana Mountains on the west end. It was there partly so that the surrounding hills would deflect the sound of the engines, at least to some degree. Nevertheless, when they set that thing off, miles away, up and over the hills, it was a roar!

8:41 Co2 free energy? have any idea how much diesel is burned to mine Uranium or Plutonium for a single reactor? Let me guess you drive a Prius and enjoy L.A. traffic.
MarbleDemo (4 months ago)
@Frequently Cynical I'd like to know more about harnessing wind energy, cylindrical turbines are starting to spin up
Frequently Cynical (4 months ago)
Plutonium is not mined, fool. It is a byproduct of U-235 fission. All forms of energy production require some level of energy to produce. Even windmills (my all electric home is 100% wind powered) require massive amounts of energy consumption and pollution for the concrete bases. No energy production is "free." Nuclear power has one of the best input/output ratios. And why do you project what he drives and where he lives?

Narrator is not an engineer. Rocket thrust is not given in 'pounds-feet'; rather the units 'lbf' translate as 'pounds force' to distinguish from 'pounds mass'. Also, torque is given in 'foot-pounds', not 'pounds-feet' for the ship engine.
Rens G T (5 months ago)
The legendary "Rocketdyne's F1 engine " that has propelled Man to Moon. 5 x F1 engine on SATURN 5 Rocket produced around 7.5 million pounds of thrust( as per common man's term's that's about "32 million Horse power").

It's a little surreal being among the parts in a 'large engine' assembly facility. If you're used to, say, VW Bug sized valves and you're walking by tables of GIANT valves and GIANT pistons...they look just the same. Just WAY bigger. And the crank is just a thing to stare at and expand one's appreciation of machining. And YOU feel small. It's a little eerie. Scale. I wonder what the efficiency is for those 40 barrels of bunker oil (a minute?!?). Man, one container ship on one trip must be climate change all by itself. Why is the primitive internal combustion engine with its abysmal efficiency all we seem to have? Particularly for these muscular jobs moving i-phones and sweat shop garments and cocaine and more cars with more ICEs. sigh

Most modern cruise ships are powered by electric motors usually three.Electricicity is generated by Diesel powered generators/alternators.That ,and the shape of the hull is what gives cruise ships their ability to move sideways and back up.

The Wartsila ship engine does NOT produce 107 to 390 horsepower !!! Saying that's about 5 million foot-pounds of torque is silly as horsepower is totally different to torque. Clearly either the author or narrator have no idea of the topic. Best stick to topics you understand.
indyrat500 (5 months ago)
Yeah, the computer text-to-voice program didn't execute 107,390 hp properly. But the torque figure for turning the propeller of a ship is actually as important as horsepower. One of the design features of the Wartsila-Sulzer is that it produces max torque at a high point in the RPM range.
indyrat500 (5 months ago)
Perhaps you do not understand that it is a text-to-voice computer program that is providing the narration. If the text is not properly written, the results are not what you might have intended. And the video producer doesn't seem to care to double-check it.

Ian McGreevy (3 months ago)
Pound-feet is inappropriate because it is not a measure of thrust nor power.
hoghogwild (5 months ago)
@FS2K4Pilot The most efficient altitude is determined by the nozzle design. The F-1 was a booster engine designed to do most of 8ts work in the atmosphere. They burned from sea level upwards for 159 seconds before the more efficient second stage J-2 engines took over. Those engines were 100% optimized for use in vacuum.
FS2K4Pilot (5 months ago)
hoghogwild The F-1 made 1.5 million pounds of thrust on the test stand at sea level, but at its most efficient operating altitude, the F-1 made over 2 million pounds of thrust.
hoghogwild (5 months ago)
It's actually measured in lbf but everyone just says "pounds", I think the video makers saw the units "lbf" and mistook it for a value used for torque, "pound feet" when rockets are measured using units of lbf or "pounds force". The F-1 produced 1,500,00 pounds force or 6,700,000 newtons or 680 tf (tons force). To make that much thrust each F-1 used 5,683 pounds (2,578 kg) of propellants every second.
