No, the sound staged that it was filmed on was.

I'm just going to sit here and agree with you, OP.

An A-10 could shoot that thing out of the sky with ease...

Just saying...

I waa going to say the USS Iowa, but the SatV is also an amazing piece of hardware.

I experienced several Apollo moon shots.  There are no words to describe the sight, sound, pressure and fury.

LOL at the mach cone while it's is still near vertical.

25 stories tall and hit mach 7 while it was still in the atmosphere. It is still considered the most complicated machine ever built by man.

Problem is, they say we are to dum to build new Saturn V now
That’s why we have been contracting to the Russian space people
Now Elon musk is building rockets that nasa can’t
Link Posted: 1/13/2021 8:25:31 PM EST
First though of Saturn V when read the thread title.  Mock-up of the thing is at the Houston Space Center.  Even laying there it’s an impressive piece of engineering.
Link Posted: 1/13/2021 8:25:34 PM EST
Just think, the country that built that will be unrecognizable in a couple short decades. I doubt the minds even exist to recreate it.

Fat man was fairly complicated, but little boy was built from a sawed off howitzer barrel.

Twenty tons a second.  It took some genius engineers to even figure out how to burn fuel that fast.

No, that's half the rate.  It was about five million pounds in two and a half minutes.  Twenty TONS per SECOND.
