Russia Botches Another Rocket Launch : Discovery News
Odd how rocket technology seems to be getting worse as time progresses...but yet int the 90's, 80's, 70's, 60's with inferior rocket designs...things seemed to hum along great...just something to think about...

They are not 'moron's...and the new generation of 'shuttles' or whatever, have been in planning for decades...those in top secret positions, within the government are way ahead of you on this...they just need you to pay your taxes to fund it...

Good point...

Would you please do research on a topic instead of showing us your total ignorance on it?

Just something to think about...

You have no idea what you're talking about other than "government conspiracy".

Hopefully whenever you are promoted to the 5th grade they'll teach you how to intelligently discuss a subject...

Shuttles or whatever,

If I had even known that you were remotely connected with this thread, I would not have responded...but then I went back and looked and I was like 'Oh no, the first person I quoted or corrected was plwhit'.....

I did not even notice that last night...I simply saw a poster that was 'off' in their accessment of things, and felt they needed correcting...but I had no idea it was you I was correcting...

Get over it...

Well Ok, it's not that you were 'off'...

I was simply trying to help you see a larger picture...

Like how is it that more rockets are blowing up now, than say 30 years ago??

It seems in the 1960's man could go to mars, venus, wherever...

But now, in 2011...rockets are blowing up left and right....

Just trying to help you see the bigger picture...

But again...I did not know it was you...

I didn't even notice the user name...I just saw 'Rockets blow up'...and drawn in from that title...

Off-topic post, BS like this belongs in the I See Things No-One Else Sees forum....

This proves you are incompetent even at reading, nowhere in the OP does it say that...

You always seem to have a memory loss as to what the title of OP's are so let me refresh your memory:

Russia Botches Another Rocket Launch

To help you understand the English language here is the definition of the word botch, and as you can read (hopefully) "blows up" is not there:

botch (bch)tr.v. botched, botch·ing, botch·es
1.
To ruin through clumsiness.
2. To make or perform clumsily; bungle.
3. To repair or mend clumsily.

n.1. A ruined or defective piece of work: "I have made a miserable botch of this description" (Nathaniel Hawthorne).
2. A hodgepodge.

Ok fine...it botched up, instead of blowing up...either way it failed to reach orbit...and was considered a fail launch...

I have a question for you...if you don't know just say 'I do not know'...

It pertains to 'balance'....

Ever tried to balance a broom stick from your palm?
The broom wants to fall or topple over, and you have to move our body, hand, arm, to counter that...

How does a rocket not topple over moments after take off?

It's moving slow, it's long and tall...like a broom handle, yet it doesn't topple over...why not?

Can you explain that?

Again you show your ignorance, it did reach orbit and in fact it's still in orbit...

You're wierd....



Anyways...

If anyone else can answer that question I'd appreciate it...

How does a rocket stay 'balanced' moments after take off?

What forces keep it from toppling over?
