    Okay, this guy might actually be cooler than Elon Musk, with his cowboy hard hat and kerbal space program analogies

      At first he looked like a rich oil company owner. But when he takes the hat off you can tell he's just a normal person who loves rockets :)

        I know I’m a bit late to the show, but; Wow thank you for letting us just take in that moment as the rocket steadily gets further and further from sight, that ship is absolutely mind blowing, what a privilege to be so close to it. I’m just a regular dude in absolute awe right now.

              The story of his first rocket really resonated with me. In our day and age some parents are afraid to let their kids play outside by themselves. This kid was playing with dynamite when he was 9. Not only did he find it, but he dismantled it and created something that was dangerous. This experience probably defined his whole life, and created this whole company. Imagine if his grandparents were too afraid to let him play outside. Now think about all the wasted potential of the children these days. I'm not saying hand all your kids dynamite. I'm saying let your kids get inspired, and let them explore what they want to do. You never know who will be the next kid to change the world.

                                Destin, have you ever checked out the iFLY demo of neutral buoyancy? It’s an awesome thing to try. I’d be interested to get your take on terminal velocity of different substances and shapes. If you come to Austin, I’ll set up a visit with iFLY engineers to tour the 1600 Hp power plant and see the demo.

                                      Possibly the best video on YouTube, really loved it - no PR, no scripting, just an amazing open book. Really love that he's so much 'like us' too in being a huge nerd of all things rocket flight and doesn't mention $$ or other management mumbo jumbo once.

                                      My mind boggles seeing it up so close and how massive its diameter is. Good job

                                                    the best NordVPN ad read I have heard. Nice job, thanks for showing the ability to select VPN endpoint example - many talk about it but this is first time I saw someone show why you would want to use it, how interface is to select country you want to appear to come from, and then showing video suddenly working :)

                                                    Also, the CEO seems like a cool guy, great video :)

The sun has a great mass hence it applies a tremendous amount of gravitational pull on the rocket and also has a very high escape velocity (618 km/s according to google ) , then why ?
