Transcript: SpaceX When Falcon Heavy lifts off later this year, it will be the most powerful operational rocket in the world by a factor of two. With the ability to lift into orbit over 53 metric tons (117,000 lb)--a mass equivalent to a 737 jetliner loaded with passengers, crew, luggage and fuel--Falcon Heavy can lift more than twice the payload of the next closest operational vehicle, the Delta IV Heavy, at one-third the cost. Falcon Heavy draws upon the proven heritage and reliability of Falcon 9. The SES-9 is a geostationary communication satellite (A geostationary communication satellite is a satellite that is over the equator and mimics the rotation of the Earth and follows it. Because of this mimicry, the satallite appears to be stationary and offer continous opperation in the area of visibility. The falcon 9 is a 61.9 million dollar rocket. It is a two-stage rocket designed and manufactured by SpaceX for the reliable and safe transport of satellites and the dragon spacecraft into orbit. Falcon 9 delivers payloads to space aboard the Dragon spacecraft. Merlin is a family of rocket engines developed by SpaceX for use on its Falcon 1 and Falcon 9 launch vehicles. SpaceX also plans to use Merlin engines on its Falcon Heavy (Another Falcon model). Merlin engines use RP-1 and liquid oxygen as rocket propellants in a gas-generator power cycle. The Merlin engine was originally designed for sea recovery and reuse. SpaceX Falcon 9 Hello, today you will be shown about SpaceX. A Space Exploration Technologies Corporation is an American aerospace manufacturer and space transport services company with its headquarters in Hawthorne, California, USA. Failed Launches Falcon Heavy Dragon is a spacecraft created by SpaceX, Dragon is launched into space by the SpaceX Falcon 9, and SpaceX is developing a crewed version called the Dragon V2. During its flight in December 2010, the Dragon became the first spacecraft to be recovered successfully from orbit. On 25 May 2012, a similar model of the Dragon became the first commercial spacecraft to successfully rendezvous with and attach to the International Space Station (ISS). SpaceX Dragon SES-9 Thank You for listening and I hope you learned something about SpaceX A reusable rocket are rockets are one spaceX are one of spacex's cutting edge inventions. Used in reusable launch systems which can lauch lots of capacity into space more than once it is also used in expendable launch systems where they are launched then are destroyed. Merlin (rocket engine family) What is a reusable rocket On June 28th, 2015 SpaceX launched the Faclon 9 with the dragon carried in it. It was going to bring supplies to the ISS. Everything was normal until 2 minutes and 19 seconds through when a cloud of vapor initiated . After a few seconds after the vapor there was a loss of helium tank pressure, after that the tank exploded and the mission was failed. This is a graphic about the dragon spacecraft and its landing plan Shiven

Falcon 9v1.0 (developed 2005-2010; flown 2010-2013 Redmond, WA -Falcon 9 Air: In December 2011, SpaceX signed a contract with Stratolaunch to develop an air-launched, multi-staged rocket. However, in Nov 2012, Stratolaunch decided to partner with Orbital Sciences Corperation, ending the Falcon Air 2012-2014 -Same design as Falcon 9, utilizing the 9-engine clusters and heavy configuration -Raptor engines = 1M lbf each -Diameter of 100ft 2010-2012 Kennedy Space Center (leased part from NASA) 2002-2006 -Small, reusable -Roughly 1000lbs into orbit -Testbed for all later rockets -Cost = $7.5M Competition Hawthorne, CA -Daniel Tyree SpaceX Headquarters Dragon Capsule Southern NM Headquarters: Hawthorne, CA Founder: Elon Musk Founded: June, 2002 2006-2010 -Program designed to develop technology to land the primary stage of the rocket for reuse -Possibility of program helping to reduce launch cost up to 10 times of current cost -Primary cause for success of SpaceX as a business -Improve reliability to space. -First sample return mission to Mars. -Exploration and colonization of Mars.
