That was an interesting side-by-side representation of each of those boosters. One of the things that really stood out to me was the voracious appetite of the Saturn V F-1 engines; just how fast those five engines went through the huge RP-1 and LOX tanks in that first stage. As I recall, it was three tons of propellants per engine per second. Just the pump hardware to support those rates boggles the mind.

Thanks for posting that.

Earl

I chuckled a bit when the Tesla was exposed.

This video proves one thing for me. The Saturn V is still the coolest and most awesome piece of machinery in all of recorded history. The shuttle's cool factor only comes from the huge cargo bay and landing on runways. I never cared much for it until it was taken away from us. The Falcon Heavy is cool because it works, is cost effective, boosters can land on a dime, and it may very well be our best chance to do cool things in the future. Nothing about SLS is cool to me. All that said, coolness means nothing except to the individual observing it.
