Fun fact.
The first stage of the Saturn 5 rocket burned 5 tons of fuel.... a second.
And half a century later it is still by far the most powerful rocket ever made.

on an unrelated note, the man on the picture is wernher von braun, a german rocket scientist who helped develop the v-2 rocket during world war 2

Only because they were the only people willing to fund his rocket experiments.
The adjusted for inflation the V2 program cost over 20 BILLION dollars.

But as soon as the yanks realized the potentials of rockets as weapons they snatched up as many German scientists as possible. At first he was put to work building missiles, but then when the whole space race took off, he started working on space rockets, which is what he really wanted to do since the 20s.
But back then no one took him seriously, and many scientists mocked him for wanting to send objects into space.

If you read some of the stuff he wrote it's very clear that he never wanted to make weapons, he wanted to help send humanity into space. And even though he had to work with the Nazis to do it he designed the first man made object to reach space, which was a V2.

And the Russian rockets that sent the first satellite and animals into space were modified versions of Von Braun's V2 rocket.

now i read what i wrote again, i kinda made him look like some bad dude who wanted to blow stuff up, a lot of german scientist did stuff like this after the war in countries where they had money for their research

More fun facts:

• Each Saturn V was powered by five F-1 engines.
• Each engine weighed 18,000 lbs. and measured 19 feet tall and 12 feet wide.
• Each engine provided 1.5 million pounds of thrust off the launch pad, boosting the spacecraft 42 miles into space at a speed of 6,164 mph.

About 25,000 lbs of engine parts were recovered from the Atlantic by Bezos Expeditions in March 2013 and are being preserved at the Kansas Cosmosphere and Space Center. True story. You can actually go watch the conservation process in action, which is pretty epic.

Until the SLS comes out in a few years

Another fun fact.

When the Saturn 5 ignited, the energy consumption in the US increased by 0.05% for 3 minutes.

Something like 86 Million Horsepower.

I'm sure we have the technology available to build a more powerful rocket. We're just so busy threatening each other that we stopped giving a **** about space.

Give it some time, once china claims a chunk of the moon everyone else is going to get their respective **** into gear.
User avatar #11 to #9 - fantomen (07/11/2013) [-]
No country can claim to own territory off the earth.
However it is potentially legal for individuals and companies to own objects in space.

Lunar republic of Mark? I like it.
#15 to #11 - creepyunclebob (07/11/2013) [-]
By whose authority? What exactly stops a country from making those claims?
User avatar #16 to #15 - fantomen (07/11/2013) [-]
It's.... complicated. It's basically international law.
#17 to #16 - creepyunclebob (07/11/2013) [-]
Huh. The more you know.

Fun fact: The UN doesn't do **** .
User avatar #23 to #22 - fantomen (07/12/2013) [-]
That's a lie.
They are very good at wasting time and money, as well as making small local conflicts in africa into massive wars.

There was a UN treaty on that about claiming territory on the moon. The only countries that didn't were the US and Russia

You can buy a square foot of the moon for about £13, I heard. Not sure if that's true. I know that no single person or place can own a planet or moon, but a group of people can. I think.
User avatar #25 to #24 - fantomen (07/12/2013) [-]
you can buy land on the moon, but you buy them from a guy that just claimed to own the moon in like the 60s. And his claim to the moon isn't exactly solid, so you might as well pay the guy to give you a sheet of paper with the words "I'm a sucker" printed on it.

Uhh no, it's just that it isn't an efficient method of space flight.

You know we're sitting on four million pounds of fuel, one nuclear weapon and a thing that has 270,000 moving parts built by the lowest bidder.

lightbulb: "when asked it he wee V/ cried ebert meking the first
epeen shuttle (ritual"

translation: When he asked his penis it cried about the first E-penis shuttle ritual.

seems about right.

We're not commenting on the light bulb any more, thanks.

It's not the fact that it isn't hard to verify at all that makes your comment stupid.

It's the fact that you say you only trust wikiquotes.

It's not hard at all to verify it.
