Rocket science. A term we all use to describe something incredibly difficult. Trying to grasp all of the concepts involved in rocket science can be incredibly intimidating.

My name’s Tim Dodd but I'm better known as the Everyday Astronaut. Recently I fell head over heals in love with spaceflight. My appreciation and curiosity for the subject grew into an obsession. Before you knew it, all I wanted to do was learn more and more. And the more I learned, the more I wanted to share what was making me so excited.

But as someone who dropped out of college and has no technical background or degree… I really felt unqualified for the job of explaining rocket science to anyone. But the fact of the matter is, if I can learn this stuff, anyone can.

Rocket science is awesome, and you don’t need to be a rocket scientist to be excited.

Everyday Astronaut. Bringing space down to Earth for everyday people.

I’m only 2 thirds in but stop making this sound so expensive and what we will get. There are lots of people who use this as ammunition against space. Instead of realizing how much bang for the buck we get. Compare it to the 80 billion a year minimum wasted on an over bloated military! Not to mention the billions if not trillions spent on black projects that answer to no one. I think money spent on discovery instead of destruction is money well spent. Especially if the main goal is permanent base etc on the moon. Not to mention if the goal is Mars. The problem is these overbloated contractors who again are used to ripping us off on military contracts and over runs with endless military budgets. I was born in mar.of 69 and my mom set me up as a baby in front of the tv and literally remember the last mission. I thought we would have the choice to live on the moon when I was an adult. Now it’s been 50yrs and I just want to see us go back before people of my generation start dropping off. You think you’ve been waiting along time. Keep fighting because my generation has been in limbo for 50yrs...

to me, the F1 is and probably always will be king. it is still somewhat viable in diciplines noone even thought about when building it and lets face it: its a grandpa, that thing is over half a century old. Apollo 4 is closer to the end, no, even the start, of WW1 than it is to now. when that engine was built, the highest tech of computers were metal rings welded onto a wiregrid by hand, yet it can still keep up.

I think it's so cool how at 5:16 Tim says "This doesn't look right at all (...) This is because I built this entirely around physics", and low and behold, two years later this is basically how BFS evolved into Starship. KSP should be mandatory for all rocket engineers :P I guess it kind of falls into "The best part is no part" philosophy - "If you can't make it work in KSP, then it's too complex" :D

You didn’t explain why they chose a suicide burn rather than a controlled glide as per the space shuttle. I think the reason is that the huge wings and undercarriage add considerable weight compared to the SpaceX solution. It’d be interesting to know the resulting payload reduction. (Okay, I guess thecreal reason is the need to land on Mars, where an aircraft would be useless.) They could also have used a parafoil wing and landing skids, but chose not to for some reason. Also you mentioned landing legs built into the fins, whereas they are now separate. It’d be interesting to know why. My guess is that the landing could damage the fins, or air brakes if you prefer. Anyway, good video.

What actually makes me kinda satisfied is the absolute KERBALNESS of this *SMACK* style landing. Next time someone tells you "hurr durr ksp bad look theese crafts can literally hit the ground at 7m/s and survive wtf wtf wtf", just replay "dud, just because everyone does BUTTERY smooth, calculated landings, doesn't mean it is impossible to survive a literal crash. hAvE yOU sEen Sn10 tEst FLiGhT?" :))))

Here here 😀 I can’t explain rockets, Tim can with peerless knowledge and infectious enthusiasm for where, ultimately, we are headed as a species. And more importantly he connects to my kids (boys, 13 and 11 years like I wish I could and I know they need. To inspire them personally and professionally. It’s not about the cost of the seat. It’s about the legacy of the trip. I VOTE for TIM 😎
