Crew Demo 2 (Launch)

  • Published on Jun 1, 2020
  • Part 1: Launch
    Part 2: Coast -
    Part 3: Approach/Docking -
    On Saturday, May 30th, Falcon 9 successfully launched Crew Dragon’s second demonstration (Demo-2) mission from Launch Complex 39A (LC-39A) at NASA’s Kennedy Space Center in Florida. This test flight with NASA astronauts Bob Behnken and Doug Hurley on board the Dragon spacecraft initiated the return of human spaceflight to the United States.

    Demo-2 is the final major test for SpaceX’s human spaceflight system to be certified by NASA for operational crew missions to and from the International Space Station. With this launch, SpaceX helped initiate the return of human spaceflight to the United States with one of the safest, most advanced systems ever built. NASA’s Commercial Crew Program is a turning point for America’s future in space exploration that lays the groundwork for future missions to the Moon, Mars, and beyond.

    Could 2 or 4 of the Super Draco abort thrusters be used as an emergency back-up for landing, in the unthinkable and extremely undesirable event of parachute deployment failure at landing? This situation caused the very first inflight fatality in the history of spaceflight.

    • Christian Stiker
      Christian Stiker 16 days ago

      NebTheWeb well SpaceX doesn’t have real plans for tourism - the dragon is meant, at least right now, for exploration. Also a Blue Origin ticket would be suuuuuuper expensive cause the rocket can only fit a few passengers. I don’t have a problem at all with BO, it’s just that they’ve been in a race to send a person into orbit for a while now and SpaceX just won.

    • NebTheWeb

    In 1969 I sat in a school gymnasium folding chair and watched Neil, Buzz and Mike land on the moon. And this just shortly after losing 3 men on the launching pad. We were all holding our breath until they were pulled (alive) from the capsule and were back safe on mother Earth. Up until Demo-2 this was the most exciting thing I had ever seen. We are now watching the future of our species - provided we don't find a way to kill our world with weaponized virus strains or drain off 100% of our resources before finding a way to do what we do without them. I hope I can find a way to hang around long enough to see how we came out....

    So what happens to the stage 2 engine and fuel tanks? Does it just endlessly float around in orbit? If Spacex ends up launching tens of thousands of Starlink satellites then there is going to be a lot of space debris to worry about. As space gets even busier that's going to be a severe junk yard crowding problem.

      @Delay Correct. Just ice debris formed from some sort of venting. In the following video (which I will cue up to start at the point of interest), you will see the ice form, then slide down into that groove, and then slide around into the back of a bunch of other imaginary "mice", and eventually, you will see a few of them slide off the edge of the rocket into the abyss. Once the rocket shuts down even more 'mice' will jump to their deaths ;)

      Bernado Saavedra sorry pal, that is not a mouse, hamster, gerbil, or even a rat. Just ice that forms from some type of venting behind the rocket. Here you can see it form, and then it slides down into that groove where it accumulates with other imaginary mice, and then falls of the end of the rocket. Watch carefully.

    Oh man! This is all so great! I was a kid during the Gemini and Apollo launches. We had our first black and white TV one winter. TV broadcast stations normally shut off between midnight and 6 AM would start up at 4 or 5 in the morning. I was preschool and my dad would wake me in the wee hours to watch the launches with him. This kinda brings it all back with the belief such great things can be done along with the excitement. I can't wait to see Starship and Super Heavy fly. I'm an old guy now. I don't how much of this space age I'll live to see. Gonna try to hang on to see as much of it as possible. This revived interest is a good thing for me at my age. Thank You SpaceX! By the way I've heard designing the thrust structure for Super Heavy is challenging. No doubt. I have a suggestion. Build three tank sections just like being done for Starship now but make them about half the diameter. Bundle them together to make a full diameter tank section. Notice the curved triangle in the center forms a natural downcomer for fuel. You've mastered making steel tubes already, this is just a tweak of that. I think this will give you more loadbearing capacity per kilogram of steel than trying to put all the steel in the outer hull. You could tweak this design a little like still make an outer full diameter hull and make the curved outer sections of the inner tanks straight and one plate of steel out to the full diameter hull. Only the inner part of the tanks would be circular with straight plates attaching them to the outer hull. Something like that. You could keep all the tanks separate pressure vessels or cut holes in the sections between them to make one big tank. You'd have to look at the pros and cons of either. The three tubes making up the bundled sections could be continuous tubes from thrust puck to thrust puck with bulkheads and holes where and how required. I'm sure you get a lot of design suggestions so I humbly submit this one with that in mind. And I am an accredited engineer in real life. Once again, Great Work SpaceX! Keep it up! Oh please do keep it up! Let's see Starship and Supr Heavy fly this year!

    Here is an interesting fact: This was all made possible because of the Russians. If the Russians sold Elon the ICBM he wanted at a reasonable price before forming Spacex so he could launch a greenhouse to Mars, that would have probably been the end of it, no Spacex. But, the deal was never made which motivated Elon to create Spacex; which as of now will be saving us billions of dollars that would've been going to Russia for tickets to space. I bet Russia is now pretty pissed about that loss of future revenue lol. Would have been a better investment to just give Elon that ICBM for free back then. So lets all take a minute to thank Russia for bringing human spaceflight back to the great US of A.
