Hey just wanted to say love what you do and thanks for the video, Oh I remember! Looking back, Goodman noted that “being a part of the Delta II team was one of the highlights of my career. “It would be bad if these boosters failed. The normal ones cost about a tenner. 2. The rocket was to launch a "new generation of satellites for the U.S. Air Force." “Once again, a tribute to all who designed and built this powerful guidance system.”, Noting that “RIFCA has served Delta II well for over two decades,” Bernard added, “I feel honored to be a small part of this legacy.”. I found it to be immensely entertaining and informative. Bernard recounted that his insurance adjuster was initially skeptical when he reported the cause of damage as a collision with a rocket. Awesome idea for a new series. I’ve been watching this guy for three years and I only just now realized he has a monobrow, Professor Manley, we’d love to hear your take on the Chinese sci fi blockbuster, The Wandering Earth, now on Netflix. Delta II vehicles included the Delta 6000, and the two later Delta 7000 variants ("Light" and "Heavy"). Looking forward to more! The partial failure occurred on Aug. 5, 1995, during a launch from Cape Canaveral Air Force Station of the Koreasat-1 satellite. The most expensive fireworks display in history. They knew they had a flaw in the engine as they were losing one flight in 23 and half of those were due to engines going “boom”, but they had not been able to find the cause. Or “Great explosions in space travel history!”. The Aerospace Corporation provides crucial support to the Commercial Crew Program, with embedded roles on the NASA team able to leverage the FFRDC’s depth of knowledge and technical expertise. The complete failure was on Jan. 17, 1997, as a Delta II attempted to launch the first GPS II-R satellite from Cape Canaveral. A great idea for a new series! Aerospace's team again relied on its technical excellence and dedication to mission... As a result of COVID-19, Aerospace engineers have pioneered new, innovative means of accomplishing laser alignment communications remotely, in compliance with new health safety guidelines. Great idea for series of videos. When the $55 million Delta rocket exploded, an Air Force officer announced over a loudspeaker: "Take cover immediately from falling debris. More strap on boosters for better atmospheric penetration, but beware of explosive warts. Its not played out for everyone. It’s pretty cool and spectacular. It got heavier and heavier and became the delta; the tanks have been stretched, a second stage was added. 4. Delta Launch History. The main payload on this final mission was NASA’s Ice, Cloud, and Land Elevation Satellite-2, or ICESat-2, which will use laser pulses to measure the elevation of ice sheets, glaciers, sea ice, and forest vegetation. All Rights Reserved. Keep up the great work Scott! Delta 226, a Standard 7925-9.5 with a GPS Payload. Love you his channel so much it hurts my brain. The complete failure was on Jan. 17, 1997, as a Delta II attempted to launch the first GPS II-R satellite from Cape Canaveral. The Delta II rocket was first launched on 14 February 1989. Aerospace was involved over the years with various aspects of Delta II development and integration with GPS satellites. Rockets don`t fail, they sometimes just make alternative live choices. The cloud produced by the explosion provided an opportunity to evaluate the models which are used to track potentially toxic dispersing plumes and clouds at CCAFS. We better test them so that doesn’t happen.” You did your research. Agent: Oh, that’s good. 3. The launch was the first National Security Space Launch mission to include recovery of the first stage booster. If you’re covering rocket failures, you absolutely have to include the Ariane 5 launch. Basic question… Wooo! Thanks for your content and being such a cool guy. At 13 seconds into the flight, a solid rocket motor exploded, triggering a spectacular explosion that rained debris around the … “Good thinking, Jim.”. Delta II was an expendable launch system, originally designed and built by McDonnell Douglas.Delta II was part of the Delta rocket family and entered service in 1989. The Delta II first launched on Feb. 14, 1989 from Cape Canaveral, carrying the initial GPS Block II satellite. © 1997 Cable News Network, Inc. All Rights Reserved. The US Air Force needed another way to launch its GPS satellites . “The RIFCA performed flawlessly!” Bernard said. But he was convinced after Bernard told him to turn on the television, which was covering the event right then. The first GPS satellite was launched in 1978. There were reports that store windows 10 miles away were broken by the explosion. Looking forward to more episodes of this. Each of these fairings can be … So did your house catch fire and spread to your car? . It is perhaps the only crash that can give this firework display a run for it’s money! Thanks! When you haven’t watched Scott Manley in about 8 years (whenever I last watched ksp), you’re so outdated about the rocket stuff and you get blasted with a whole bunch of rocket terminology which you have no clue about.. That’s me.. I saw a documentary on this failure once where one of the engineers described making an insurance claim about is totally destroyed car. The Delta II launch vehicle offers the user a choice of three fairings: a 2.9-m (9.5-ft)-diameter skin-and-stringer center section fairing (bisector), and two versions of a 3-m (10-ft)-diameter (bisector) composite fairing with two different lengths. High quality clickbait. A plastic protective cap on the nozzle popped off with a good loud pop sound. Think about a spectacular end everyone can see instead of burning up over the ocean where nobody notices. Sometimes you learn things the hard way. People were standing around near the nozzle. Any chance of getting ‘lucky’? That’s a rather pricey firework. I would like to see a video on how the self destruct system works. TWTs and 3D Printing: Aerospace Puts a New Twist to an Old Classic, Launch in the New Normal: SpaceX's Falcon 9 Sends Space Force's GPS III-3 to Orbit, New COVID-19 Norms Foster Agile SmallSat Innovation, NASA/SpaceX's Demo-2 Launch: A New Era for Human Spaceflight, Aerospace Selects David Radzanowski as Chief Financial Officer, Aerospace Ups R&D in Huntsville, Anticipated Growth of 20 Percent, Aerospace Awarded Potential $621M Engineering Services Contract by NASA, Aerospace Grows in Albuquerque by 25 Percent, 2310 E. El Segundo Blvd., El Segundo, CA 90245. However, Air Force officials say the rocket self-destructed about 11 a.m. EST after "an anomaly" occurred about 10 seconds into the flight. A series about booms! Thanks Scott! No injuries were reported. Great choice of series. It was the 155th flight of the Delta II and the 100th consecutive successful launch, a record unmatched by any other launch vehicle in history. Air Force officials said the satellite system was a significant improvement over previous designs that required a specific launch window for each orbital position. My brother in law was in the blockhouse that day. (The one where the Internal Guidance was installed Upside down! They are so large but the scale throws off perceived velocity. United Launch Alliance Unfortunately, all good rockets must inevitably step aside for newer, more capable vehicles, and for Delta II, the end has been in sight for several years. Fantastic series idea! The RIFCA had better luck than Bernard’s truck. As a new employee, I was given a tremendous amount of responsibility, and the experiences benefited me throughout my career. Absolutely awesome video, Scott! AKA: “Why You Will Not Go To Space Today”. No one was injured and the launchpad itself was not seriously damaged. Is like you to talk about the aluminum scam NASA recently figured out. Funny story; Once at Vandenberg one of the solid boosters was out of storage and sitting outside to get some testing. You did such a great job with this video. Agent: *confused staring*. I am massively looking forward to the continuation of this series! Would be super awesome if you could cover the failures of the first rockets/rocket motors. 1:35 – I hope their insurance covered that…, Should be an interesting series. If your SRB has a hairline crack, you will not go to space today. Why rockets fail: Informative and entertaining, nice work. Thanks for the great content Scott! Unmanned rocket explodes after liftoff Residents stay inside awhile to avoid smoke January 17, 1997 Web posted at: 4:15 p.m. EST. I assume the air heated up in the nozzle expanded enough to pop the cover off. Apparently the insurance company was skeptical when he said that “a rocket fell on it.” If this is done on purpose in your editing, I really appreciate it. Thanks. It’s amazing how far a rocket can get in 12.4 seconds. Vehicle Configurations. I was there!!!
