Reel Truth Science Documentaries

2 jaar geleden

Richard Hammond reveals the engineering connections in NASA's Space Shuttle - the world's first re-usable space craft. He goes backstage at Kennedy Space Centre, in Florida, to discover how an organ pump, tram tracks, a WWII anti-sonar device, a camera iris and a cannonball all helped create the most technologically advanced machine ever engineered by man. Conceived in the early 1970's as the successor to the Apollo Moon missions, the Shuttle is a delivery system, designed to transport payloads such as the Hubble Telescope, and most of the International Space Station, into orbit, and return for its next cargo. The delivery van is the Orbiter - what most people call the Shuttle - which is mated with a huge external fuel tank and rocket boosters which are all jettisoned. Surviving the huge destructive forces of travelling to space and returning in usable form called for ingenious engineering compromises. The Shuttle is a rocket for the first part of its life, then morphs into a plane for the return journey.

shuttle was an amazing waste of money lives and science. really cool though. Dag geleden
Space Shuttled sucked.... Apollo-Saturn was the best by far.. the biggest, fastest and most power machine ever built by man. Stupid shuttle cost more per launch than disposable rockets, an utter failure, especially considering all the dead astronauts

Amazing episode! I always thought the water was for protection (or cooling) of the launch platform, because of the beams of the engines projected on it.

I use the coldest liquid known to man to cool our engine, shortly before burning it through the hottest engine... When your fuel doubles as a refrigerant, that is a real 200iq play.

Many years ago in Africa. We discovered boiling water in grocery plastic bags was possible. We managed to boiled tea and cook spaghetti in open flames. We realized even hot water could cooldown thin plastic bags from the high temperature of the flames who actually touched the plastic.

i like bio-engineering better. Its like magic, doesnt matter what type of field ur'e practicing, we are all chemical compounds.. if i wanted to, I can turn a person into a super solider, I can turn gases into solids.... I can create a new world, or a solar system. a real functional natural solar system, but it would never be natural, for the fact that it was planned. Foils!!!

However...the space shuttle program is actually more of a failure considering the fact it was actually far more expensive than nasa thought, more expensive than the saturn 5. Oh and btw the Russian equivalent of the shuttle was better in every way

Thank you so so so very much Mr Richard Hammond and other members of your team and collaborators who produced this video and posted here. You have shared incredibly inaccessible sites and information about different systems with us. The inspirations that may have come from unthinkable places and technologies been amazing. Ofcourse you have produced a few other documentaries on these lines. To date I had seen only one. But now I am going to look for each one of those and will watch. Sharing knowledge and information with the world is one of the most noblest of things to do. God bless you and all those who endeavour to do this.

Hydrogen is perfect for cooling engines because it has the highest *heat capacity* of any substance, not because it is cold. The fact that it's kept at extremely low temperatures doesn't hurt, but that's not what makes it a good coolant. The heat capacity of Hydrogen gas is 14.3 kJ/kg K. That means it takes 14300 joules of energy to raise the temperature of 1 kilogram of Hydrogen by 1 Kelvin. The heat capacity of liquid water is only 4.186 kJ/kg K, less than a third that of Hydrogen. Heat will always flow from a hotter object to a cooler object. Something doesn't have to be cold to provide cooling, it just has to be cooler than the thing it's cooling. Heat capacity makes all the difference. I understand that documentaries have to simplify things sometimes, but when you simplify things too much they just become wrong.
