The race to the moon is back on, but why does SpeceX’s Starship & super heavy booster need 33 engines when NASA’s Saturn V rocket, which went to the moon six times 55 years ago only needed five. We look at what has changed since then and why many smaller engines and all the extra complexity that comes with them seem to be the way forward for the modern space industry.

Birth of Planet Earth || 4k

In the fiery beginnings of our young solar system, worlds are born and obliterated. Gas giants stir chaos. And a young sun vents its rage. How did Earth survive against all odds? This eye-opening 4K documentary tracks the perilous path our planet took in its early years through advanced, data-driven, cinema-quality CGI. It explores some of the greatest questions in science today: How did Earth become a living planet? What does its history tell us about our chances of finding other worlds that are truly Earth-like?

Can We Raise Children in Space?

If humans are ever to have a future living in space, we’ll have to figure out how to reproduce and raise children outside Earth’s atmosphere. Can we find ways around formidable obstacles such as radiation, the effects of zero gravity, or isolation from the nurturing biosphere of Earth? Is it ethical to even try?

Energia Vulkan Moon Rocket on the Pad

The Energia Vulkan design was the largest of the Energia concepts with eight Zenit booster rockets and an Energia-M core as the upper stage, the Vulkan (which shared the name with another Soviet heavy lift rocket that was cancelled years earlier) configuration was initially projected to launch up to 200 metric tonnes into 200 km orbit with inclination 50.7°

The development of the Vulkan and the refurbishment of Universal Test Stand and Launch Pad at site 250 for its launches was in progress between 1990–1993 and abandoned soon after due to a lack of funds and the collapse of the Soviet Union.
