Yeah, it really isn't. Elon and his companies are 99% optics. While SpaceX is a functional business the level of innovation it's credited with if fraudulent.

Intresting how americans talking about partnership and diplomacy, business with russians, collaborative work on space frontiers, when Russia in same time is pushing that money in Defence(Offence) Industry, providing crazy propaganda with RT and hate speeches against americans, ironicaly calling them "partners" in quotes, "pindosy"(bad word), eternal enemy that sponsoring color, democratic "revolutions" in russian(soviet) former colonies like Ukraine, Belarus, Georgia etc in order to damage Russia (cause this countries should be owned, annexed by Russia, how they believe). They do everything possible and impossible to destabilize Western democracy, supporting conspiracy theories, producing troll fabrics and fake influencers like fake "Tennessee GOP" in Twitter or "South United" - account based geographically in Moscow. With such a partners you even do not need enemies) In general, this is a very Christian approach, you are very kind even to your detriment

I watched channel one then came here imediately and am subscribed to both. I have three degrees and spent over 50 years in aerospace manufacturing but always learn something from your videos. I had one question while watching the milling operation on channel one. From my own machining experience I know that those pockets cannot (usualy) be finished in one cut. On smaller pieces each would be roughed out to even out the stress warpage throughout the part. Then in a second or maybe third pass through the part, each pocket would be machined to finish dimentions. Did you notice that or did Tory mention it?

annando Månad sedan
I really would had liked to know what Tory Bruno is thinking about reusability. Currently they are in a niche market where cost maybe isn't that much of an issue. But at some point it will, I guess. I'm no naive SpaceX fanboy, but seeing that - for example - the last CRS mission had been done with a booster that flew 3 times before - and the next crew mission will use a used booster as well. So I think that slowly the trust in using used parts is increasing. So one can assume that at some time ULA will get into problems, especially when Blue Origin will have their big rocket operational as well.

@SmarterEveryDay2 I worked as a sub-contracted employee for Boeing TotalAccess for 8 years... I helped Boeing/ULA Shuttle employees transition out... Boeing has it's own 24hr Fire Dept. & Police Security with a massive K9 inspection force specifically trained to detect chemicals used in bombs... Their materials and co-opted incoming parts receiving warehouse was set off away from the assembly line to make sure nothing got added to the shipment in transit... I bet ULA has the same security... Boeing also has lots of active military... Back in the day, they had a section called "Phantom Works"... Soo 007.... LOL!!!

Neil Malloy

I love how he dances around the fact that ULA just grabs other companies technology to avoid costs, yet gets billions of dollars in launch contracts from the government. Not creative enough to develop technology, well connected enough to get massive governmental funding. If your company can't compete in the commercial market, should you really be getting secret government funding? The idea that ULA delivers products that are not available from the commercial market is absurd. More over, the idea that people that don't like this video, must not like science is so self discrediting it's hard to believe a rational person would even say such a thing.
Alien Encore

Basically what he's saying is that ULA is going to focus on government contracts because he knows he can overcharge the government and still continue to under-delivery on innovation. If you're client is currently paying for old, dumb and expensive, then ULA doesn't want to be bothered with having to innovate anything. That's why they partnered with Blue Origin, so they can continue to stay away from innovation and just keep robbing the tax payers blind. Companies like this shouldn't exist at all, and in the future they won't. People are tired of big expensive government contracts that are over budget and always late.

Man, I don't want to get political, but I am a mechanical engineering college student who doesn't know too much about the market, so it is interesting to watch videos like this and learn new things (like that companies such as ALE are building for a space force). I also think it's funny how when Trump came out talking about how he was creating a Space Force, all the news media and late night tv hosts made fun of him....but it seems like he was very intelligent for making one and that it is very important he did so.
