Blue Origin, perhaps the sleeping giant of the aerospace industry, will be going from a tiny suborbital rocket, to one of the biggest rockets ever made…
Today, we’re finally going to do a quick rundown on Blue Origin, talk about their upcoming New Glenn rocket and then compare it to some of the other Heavy Lift Launchers it will be competing against.

Some notes! First: Falcon Heavy to LEO is indeed 30 tonnes, because as stated in the video, we quoted fully reusable, RTLS and droneship landing. The number you see on wikipedia (63,800 kg) is fully expendable. If you need a source on 30 to LEO here's Elon talking about it - t.co/xPA9bGiNB9 (Also backed up by a true physics simulation too) Second: That said, YES, I did have an error! I swapped graphics out last minute and forgot to change the lbs conversion of OmegA. So, the kN's are still accurate but the translation to pounds is incorrect. That number should be 4.9 million lbs. The corrected slide is on my website: everydayastronaut.com/new-glenn-2018/

That is the biggest problem for us in the rest of the world. It's a big shame that americans don't use metric system. Imperial measurments are unnecessary complicated. Come on, start using metric system at least in your videos. It would be much more professional. Even other american videos with this theme use metric system. Ps. Your videos are great to watch.

@Everyday Astronaut Are you sure New Glenn is 45 T reusable? The numbers on BO website are likely expendable ones.

So my question is, can Blue Origin legally sell rides to space on this rocket at a loss, undercutting the competition?

None of these craft impress me at all there all wimps compared to NASA s SLS if they ever get there act together its the only one close or comparable to the legendary saturn V rocket when it comes to thrust height payload capacity & the ability to send a manned mission bk to the moon & everything will have to be super sized instead of 3 crewmen 6 to 7 & the lander able to carry 4 & with seats this time not sanding up & to. Be more roomy at least they could get some sleep this time around.& forget about mars for the time being i would take a more realistic time of maybe 2040 or 2045 at the earliest otherwise its just a suicide trip not worth risking lives.& forget terraforming mars not gonna happen mars needs a full magnetic field to deflect the solar wind & cosmic rays otherwise the atmosphere would just be blown away so to speak

Both Elon and Jeff want to use fortunes to start colonies off Earth. Jeff however wants to start moon while Elon focused on Mars. Glad both doing in in case one fails. Jeff has far more money and more stable non space companies to absorb and failure however. He is more secret about progress too while SpaceX very open.

The more the merrier. Improvements are usually incremental and more lines of development can be very productive. Nice to see the profits going to something more useful than handbags.

Absolutely, I'm with you Tim. Cheer on space travel and exploration in general. We are all winners, maybe the companies are driven by (have to be) profit and return on investment - but we don't need to be!

It's fascinating that two software developers have such different views on how to build a rocket -- and how to run a rocket company. Elon and Jeff must have very different goals.

well well, did you know that every launch destroys 75.000 cubic yards of ozone/ global climate change is irreversible? that greed/stupidity and nationalistic pride wiil wipe ot life as we know it [ nuclear winter is coming?] humans have always commercialized everything they have ever touched to its extinction ...so life will be their last dodo.....just sayin.

@Everyday Astronaut so get in line with the rest of the people pointing the finger at someone else ...as the blame for what is coming and say well they are doing it also...the added weight of global meltwater is reactivating the pacific ring of fire with the added seismic activity many volcanos WILL AWAKEN [ YELLOW STONE ?] THE ADDED ASH/NOXIOUS GASSES/CARBON AND SEAWATER [ IN THE FORM OF STEAM WILL CAUSE A nuclear winter...and you can say [ by the info give to you that you approved of it ...do the research [ the scientific community won't tell you all of the ramifications involved with climate change] maybe the space station has a purpose we don't know about ?does it say trump future H.Q. on the dark side? now if more people thought about the words they memorize to repeat [ other than just parroting them we would probably question everything we have ever heard.. just saying.

You do realize one launch burns about exactly as much RP-1 as a commercial airliner? Why go after the 30 launches a year from the commercial industry when there’s THOUSANDS of flights a DAY in the commercial airline industry? Or how about the shipping industry?! Lots bigger fish to fry. Like by several orders of magnitude. Besides, we’d only know about all of this through space based observations.

WIth the bigger diameter booster Bezos may be trying to strategically be ready for the opportunity to provide New Glen second stage as coupler components in the Von Braun rotating space station.

My only complaint about Bezos, is that I think it's rubbish that Amazon not only didn't pay federal taxes, but got money back. I've also heard complaints about wages. I wish the rocket well, but question where the money to develop it came from.

I don't have a favorite. I do wish them all well and a lot of diversity in the variety of Space Communities. However do to the fact that NASA has had the go ahead for how many years? Them guys should have an engine, which gets humans moving close to light speed by now. Shame on you NASA; for letting the new private sectors out do you.

In the late 80's a product called Spinrite was the first to offer on-the-fly interleave changes without requiring data to be removed and a reformat performed. In an interview, Steve Gibson, Spinrite's creator, was asked a year or so later if he felt competitors (who by that time were also offering on-the-fly re-interleave capability) had disassembled Spinrite's critical code modules and 'stolen' it's secrets. Gibson said no, he reflected that once competent people *see* something is possible, then the actual mechanics of doing/implementing the same thing are dramatically easier. By that measure, Blue Origin, if they can deliver on their plans, will owe Space-X a significant debt.

I think the Falcon 9 and Heavy are from the company called "Buzz Space Models". I remember Tim mentioning it.

I built a rocket spaceship in my backyard. It can achieve a launch that can carry 14.3 tons of cargo and a distance to Mars with a boost around our moon. I have kept this a secret but now I want the world to know about it.

Why is the thrust in kN on the Omega labeled as 21.7k but in Lbs is only 3.4 million? Shouldn’t it be 4.9?

Actually Blue Origin is just another part of Bezos Amazon strategy. Before long all other retailers will disappear and the only place to shop will be Amazon. Likewise, Blue Origin hopes to out ULA, ULA.
