Cool phenomenon
    #369213 - 02/21/10 12:25 PM (7 years, 4 months ago)

This is video of the Atlas V launch on the 11th at Kennedy Space Center. Watch for the ripples in the sky. This video is not edited this happens because the sonic boom literally ripples the ice crystals in the air at that altitude. the sunlight bends and we see it from the ground as a ripple in the sky.

it's 1:50 into it.  Pretty neat.  I would think that the rocket would hit the sound barrier way way before that far into the flight.

I dunno, that's a pretty slow takeoff... like 1-2G's at most.


pretty damn cool still

Yeah having built and crashed several model rockets it really shows the power the big boys get to play with. The rocket is about 360 feet tall and clears the top of the launch platform in about 7 seconds which seems really slow but it's pushing a huge amount of weight. just for it to reach the speed of sound is pretty slick I think.

yep, it takes a ton of work to accelerate those rockets.  This rocket weighed about 40lbs at takeoff (including fuel weight... about 20lbs empty), but it broke the sound barrier less than 900 feet from the pad, about .6 seconds from liftoff.

then again, this was a sprint rocket I designed to essentially rip the components off a motherboard to test the strength of our new soldering techniques. lets just say 75G's pretty much does the trick on that..



already going about 90 miles per hour in that second picture. take that ferrari!
