ignition fluid also known as TEA-TAB ,they use it to start the engines, what u saw is residuals of it burning after engine shut-down

why is the rocket on fire? isnt it made out of iron or steel

Those ladders in the bottom of the second clip give a good impression of how massive the booster is.

Lesson ONE: Never let the government monopolize space flight again! Lesson TWO: The US Government does not know how to make space available to mankind. Lesson THREE: The next frontier seems much closer than ever before! Please save me a seat on a manned mission to Mars. THANK YOU SpaceX!!

It's probably a crane lowering down while some firecrackers go off. It's Hollywood gimics. Why not have an angle (OUT OF 3 BY THE WAY) that shows from above looking down. Why can't we ever see the top? Cuz it's attached to a wire...lol!!!

Many different angles of small scale landing, but NOT ONE REAL ANGLE of OUT OF SPACE!!! Because A LIE can NEVER BE TRUTH no matter how many times you tell it or slice it. And just as there is a BEGINNING TO EVERYTHING, there's also an ENDING TO EVERYTHING and the NASA HOAX has run its course.

Not a believer in Elon nor SpaceX. A high aspect ratio vehicle descending at Mach 3 (2284 mph or 1021 m/s) slowing down enough to gently touch down violates common sense and the value of fuel onboard. The USAF and NASA spent years with the concept that culminated in the DC-X vehicle. It crash landed a few times and the program cancelled. Saying Musk developed this technology is a far stretch. It was already developed. The DC-X was a short squat vehicle. Having a 12 story or more vehicle landing vertically is risky at best with cross winds and changing air pressures on the way down. Launching under boosting power in these same atmospheric layers is risky enough. The economics of reusable space craft does not work either. The shuttle was supposed to be reusable as was their SRBs - solid rocket boosters. After reconditioning and part replacement, the program was deemed a failure in the re usability department. It could be that the Falcon is a red herring throwing attention off of what NASA is really doing. For instance no one has a good handle on the X37 reusable space vehicle. That and other secret space programs.

Thx for your comments. I disagree with one point. NASA is involved in all space operations, military and civillian. It's primarily a military operation by its charter. The civilian cover is just tgat, a cover.

X37 has nothing to do with NASA - US Air Force project. There are 'tracking' groups web pages - location of X37 is well known (You can google it a bit). It also provide some clue on what is X37 doing -> probably refuelling and maybe even fixing some spy/military satellites. This job was done in past by Space Shuttles missions - You can check (even on wiki) how many of Space Shuttles missions were classified.

Man alive..all of you who can think this is real, even when you can clearly see that the landing is reversed, if any of it is even real, go get you news from the Simpsons as you live in a cartoon world, carry on and X-factor is on soon....Pls open your eyes and use your true common sense and perception 1.14 onward you can see the smoke in reverse...but HEY this is obviously possible...go to the doctor soon he/she will make you dumber with some major pharma

All you Space X fanboys, try not to forget, the first such landing was made in July 1969 by Neal Armstrong, who only had 30 seconds of fuel, and two people onboard. And he did it the first try.

I personally know people who worked on the Apollo space program. My parents worked on the space shuttle main engines. I've met many astronauts and engineers over the years. I've seen many rocket launches in person. I've touched space shuttle discovery. I've had one on one conversations with the assembly language programmers of the space shuttle. When someone says to me that they believe that the moon landings were fake, I just laugh. For me and my friends and family, we know the truth. We were there.

The moon landing of course was one of the most amazing feats ever in history, but it's like comparing apples and oranges. This is still impressive. As impressive as the moon landings? No, but impressive for totally different reasons.

How does it flip 180 without it spiralling out of control?You do realise it can not regardless of the cgi shown How does it straighten up for landing?Oh it must be the same way it stops it going out of control. Funny but I have to ask but how fast is it going when it does this amazing flip?

@Kevin Lu l Storm Chasing Wrong, there are 4 grid fins at the top. And nitrogen cold gas thrusters.

There are 2 stabilizers that shaped wing like near the bottom. This design is spaceX most important factor to success
Appable 4 years ago
@mark Draco Remember also that speed doesn't matter at all when you're out of the atmosphere. Velocity is not a force, and it's not a component of pitch, roll, or yaw, so each of those can be controlled independently without regard for the speed. In the atmosphere, due to air resistance, the vehicle will immediately try to center itself in an aerodynamically stable position and it will require a lot of force to tilt it away from that position. So during atmospheric flight, they use grid fins at the top of the rocket, which help control the rocket's attitude to some extent.
GSMSfromFV 4 years ago
+mark Draco __ The flip maneuver takes place above the atmosphere. As a result, atmospheric forces on the first stage is greatly reduced. Directional control is accomplished by the main engines, the attitude control thrusters at the top of the first stage, and the four retractable/movable control fins, also at the top of the first stage. Low velocity launches allow for a return to land, as the first stage will separate closer to the launch site. High velocity launches carry the first stage too far out over the ocean for a return to land, so the only option is to land on the barge.
mark Draco
mark Draco 4 years ago
@racinjetford Thanks for your time and explanation,I still find it very hard to believe how at over 2000mph it can gently flip over and stop,could you imagine the force needed. How cab you have directional control with an engine at the bottom ?

Good Going SpaceX ! ! ! With three recovered Falcon 9 First Stages done safely and the Falcon 9 Heavy set to fly in the fall of 2016. And the SNC DreamChaser to land gently not soon enough at a Space Port near you. The next thing SpaceX needs to develop is an Up-Graded Second Stage using Hydrogen. That will put payloads of heavier weight and a higher orbit. And the Second Stage can be used as a Space Tug or of a Reusable Rocket from the Lunar Polar Base to Low Lunar Orbit and return. And the Second Stage can be used for fuel storage. Back to the Moon to Stay and onto Mars and Beyond-Ad Astra... tjl

@Tim Lipinski Right, and methane also is nice in that it's denser so dry mass is lowered.

Yes, Methane is a good idea if you have a large supply of Carbon Dioxcide like on Mars. For Lunar Water Ice or a comet then Hydrogen may be better. tjl
