Headline Jan 30, 2018/ ''' *FLIGHT TEST SCIENCE '''


SO MUCH LIKE *STUDENTS GLOBAL ELECTIONS*, after years of delay, heavyweight rocket reaches the launchpad.

YOU, The Students of the Whole World will do very well to remember, that this is the year of global elections, of great honors and of some very great accomplishments.

SO, Just so in the week ahead- The World Students Society will publish on regular basis, all the work, all the evidence and all the milestones leading up to the Global Elections.

Everything right up there on the *Global Students Democratic Voting Portal* all in the great accomplishment of 'BetterWorldMakersNetwork', and all so soon standing out at :


All students, the world over, are most cordially invited to feel free to contact

So see Ya ALL AND when Ready for a test flight and testing.

In the meantime, The World Students Society thanks and acknowledges the all round  preemptive thinking, and the toil of chief executive officer  Mr. Wadud Mughal, Singapore.     

ON JULY 10, 1969, a towering Saturn 5 rocket sat on a Pad 39A at NASA's Kennedy Space Center at Florida.

At 9:32 a.m., the five enormous F-1 engines of its first stage ignited, expelling orange flame, dark smoke and 7.5 million pounds of thrust to life the three astronauts of Apollo 11 into space. Neil Armstrong and Buzz Aldrin set foot on the moon four days later.

TODAY, at the same launchpad, technicians working for SpaceX, Elon Musk's upstart rocket company, are preparing for the maiden flight of of what  is by most measures the world's most powerful rocket since the Saturn 5.

The Falcon Heavy will be able to carry more than 140,000 pounds to low-Earth orbit, or more than twice as much as current competing rockets.

Aboard the demonstration flight, which may take place in the  weeks ahead, will be a whimsical, cross-promotional payload for Mr. Musk -a cherry red Roadster built by his other business, Tesla, the maker of electric cars.

The car would travel around the sun in endless ellipses that extended as far out as  Mars orbit.

Mr. Musk wrote on Twitter last month : ''Payload will be my midnight cherry Tesla Roadster playing Space Oddity. Destination is Mars orbit. Will be in deep space for a  billion years or so, if it doesn't blow up on ascent.''

In response to the question : ''Why?''

Mr. Musk replied in a tweet, ''I love the thought of a car drifting apparently endlessly through space and perhaps being discovered by an alien race million of years in the future.''

Some space advocates think the Falcon Heavy could offer a quicker, cheaper path for NASA to send astronauts back to the moon.

For SpaceX in the near term, the mega-rocket could help the company compete in new markets like the launching of large spy satellites for the United States government.

If successful, ''it continues SpaceX's very impressive run of achieving launch milestones that have been viewed as very difficult,'' said Carissa Christensen, chief executive of  Bryce Space and Technology, a consulting firm that follows the space industry.

BUT FIRST, the falcon Heavy has to get off the ground. That has been a long time coming, much longer than Mr. Musk originally promised.


SpaceX successfully launched 18 of its workhorse Falcon 9 rockets last year, a remarkable recovery from a launchpad mishap in September 2016 that destroyed a rocket and the $200 million satellite on top.

After years falling short of optimistic predictions, SpaceX seemed to fall into consistent accident free-flow of sending payloads to orbit.

For 14 of the launches, SpaceX landed the boosters, to be reused for future flights.

The Heavy -described by SpaceX as far back as 2005 -is essentially a Falcon 9 with two additional 9 boosters attached to the sides. That triples the horsepower of the rocket at liftoff.

That approach allowed SpaceX to design a heavy-lift rocket largely by rearranging the same pieces..

''Because of the commonality between Falcon 9 and Falcon Heavy, we're able to spread the overhead across both vehicles,'' Mr. Musk said in a news conference in 2011.

''It's able to use the same tooling, be made in the same line, and I would think therefore significantly improves the probability of being able to hold to our cost numbers on Falcon Heavy.''

SpaceX advertises a price tag of $90 million for a Heavy launching. the modular design also cut the  development costs of the rocket,

''It is essentially the first time that the nation has gotten a super-heavy lift vehicle at essentially zero cost to the tax payer,'' said Phil Larson, an assistant dean at the University of  Colorado's  engineering school, who-

Previously worked  as a senior manager of communications and corporate projects at SpaceX.

The Honor and Serving of the latest Operational Research on Spece and Sciences and Technology continues.

With respectful dedication to Mr. Elon Musk, for outstanding and pioneering leadership in the field of adventures and science, and then the Students, Professors and Teachers of the world.

See Ya all ''register'' on !WOW! -the World Students Society and Twitter-!E-WOW! -the Ecosystem 2011:
