    Let's talk about the space program, which has received a tremendous injection of energy recently with Elon Musk's SpaceX and NASA programs. Love following Kerbal on YT, his channel is so awesome, such great raw passion and energy. What an exciting time for the space program, project Artemis back to the Moon in the coming years, then on to Mars. The launch of the Falcon 9 putting US astronauts on board the space station this year was incredible.

    Here is Kerbal's 2018 reaction video of the test launch of the SpaceX Falcon Heavy rocket......27 Merlin engines on this thing with a total thrust of 3.4 million pounds.

    The Falcon Heavy pales in comparison to the SpaceX Heavy Lift Rocket - the Starship. It will have 31 Raptor engines powering it at liftoff for a total of 16 million pounds of thrust, it will be the most powerful rocket ever launched. Here is an animation. Starship is part of the Mars landing project.
