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 - https://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: https://everydayastronaut.com/new-glenn-2018/
I'll be honest... I don't care who's flying, provided they're not shooting at me... I always get excited at a rocket launch. There's just this happy feeling of "WHOOO! GO BABY GO!" about it. Besides, it amuses me to no end that the Atlas boosters, which started their design life as Atlas ICBMs pointed at Russia (USSR at the time), are using RD-180 engines that were made in the places that the missiles were once pointed at.

Jeff who?

11:45 - Landing on a ship moving at a constant speed is no different than landing on solid ground. Just change your reference point to the ship. Then the ship isn't moving, the earth is. It's all relative :)

At one time, they were out in the south Atlantic trolling for cast off Apollo F-1 engines. Maybe they needed some clues to building a large engine? I will get excited when one is actually built and launched. Like they say...till then it is just talk. This is just another Ford/Chevy thing...
Ron Williams
Just found you channel. Thumbs up!
Jeff who?
Petr Valkoun
yes, right after BFR/falcon heavy

An update on Bigelow aerospace's B330 and future models would be nice :D

If the New Glenn crashes on the landing ship the damage may be more expensive and catastrophic.
anything space is awsome in my book

You earned my sub... but, at 16:09, why is your fine list missing the Atlas rockets?
I'm sorry but Jeff who?
Jim 762
Video was interesting.
You are not bonehead.
Shave and lift a weight or 2 maam ....
Where was the BFR on your side by side comparison Hey if i draw up a huge rocket and send it to you with a donation will you put my rocket on your next side by side p.s. should i send a users guide with my pic
Tommy's Outdoors
Great video! I have learned a lot and I admire your knowledge. But, boy, you're annoying. I almost stopped watching. Can't wait for you to grow up. Which will happen, I'm sure. ;) Keep up the great work and good luck!

Sometimes, madam, a rocket is just a rocket.
Carolus Rex
The difference

SpaceX: conolise Mars and Moon
Blue Origin: 💸💸💸

OOF, now your speaking my language, Cessna to 747.

Imma support spaceX just because their landing ship is called just read the instructions & of course i still love you

2018 was a big year for science and technology, and 2019 is shaping up to be more of the same. Here's some of the big science stories we'll be following in the coming year.

On May 20th of this year, the scientific community will be redefining four metric units of measurement, the kilogram, the Kelvin, the mole, and the ampere.

The Event Horizon telescope is an attempt to image the black hole at the center of the Milky Way, known as Sagittarius A. The telescopes actually did the imaging last year, and the team is in the process of collecting the data and analyzing it, but the expectation is that this year we should get, for the first time, an actual image of a black hole

in the first half of the year, Tesla will finally unveil their long-awaited $35,000 baseline Model 3, but it’s also expected sometime this year that Tesla will unveil the Model Y, their crossover model based on the Model 3 platform. and a lot of people are also speculating that at the Model Y reveal, Elon may do a “one more thing” thing and introduce the Tesla pickup.

Other EVs that will be released in 2019 include the Audi e-Tron, the Mercedes EQC, an update for BMW’s i3 with a larger battery, the Jaguar iPace, the Volvo XC40, the Porche Taycan, the Kia e-Niro, The Kia Soul EV, the Hyundai Ioniq, and the Mini Electric.

New Horizons, the probe that sent us those amazing pictures of Pluto back in 2015, is now flying through the Kuiper belt, and just passed the asteroid Ultima Thule, which we'll be getting detailed images from this year

Hayabusa2 from JAXA will collect soil samples from the asteroid Ryugu this year.

Similarly the Osiris Rex mission from NASA arrived at the asteroid Bennu just about a month ago on December 3rd and will spend 2019 scanning and imaging Bennu.

The Parker Solar Probe will make 2 flybys of the sun this year, one in April and one in September.

There’s also a slew of moon landings coming this year that are worth following.

ISRO, the Indian Space Research Organization plans to land on the moon with Chandrayaan-2 which they expected to launch last year but it’s been pushed back to January 31st.

But before that, the Chinese National Space Administration landed Change’4, which actually launched in December, on the far side of the moon.

SpaceX plans to start performing hopper tests this year for their Starship, previously known as BFR,

But perhaps no piece of news or space related event this year can come close to the first tests of the SpaceX Dragon 2 capsule that will finally return the US to manned missions to space.

At the same time, the Boeing Starliner capsule will see space for the first time in March with an uncrewed demo mission, followed by a scheduled manned mission in August of 2019.
