  1. For Questions That Don't Merit Their Own Thread

    What are the equations for drag loss and gravity loss? Plus, does the weight of a rocket on wikipedia include the upper stages?
  2. For Questions That Don't Merit Their Own Thread

    Do spent boosters re-entering the atmosphere burn up completely?
  3. For Questions That Don't Merit Their Own Thread

    That answer is good enough for me. Next question. Is it possible that any parts of the rocket equation are wrong?
  4. For Questions That Don't Merit Their Own Thread

    I meant environmentally. I will edit my question.
  5. For Questions That Don't Merit Their Own Thread

    Last time I meant rocket fuels but I forgot to specify so I didn't really get any answers so I asked one abot just roclet fuels now.
  6. For Questions That Don't Merit Their Own Thread

    Okay guys I got a new question. How about ideas for more bio-friendly rocket fuels? (Both solid and liquid) EDIT: More environmentally friendly.

    Okay guys, next question. What are your ideas for bio-friendly fuels? By this I mean fuels that don't contribute to global warming etc.

    Actually hydrolox is worse because it it taking some H2O up to the upper atmosphere where it is sparse, and water is actually a worse greenhouse gas than CO2.

    But isn't methane more of a pollutant, or does it turn into something harmless out of the nozzle?
  10. For Questions That Don't Merit Their Own Thread

    Okay guys I got all the answers I needed on my last question here is a new one: if Elon Musk is concerned with the air quality and want dossil fuels to stop being used, why is he using kerosene in his rockets? I know there isn't much carbon dioxide yearly compared to cars, but it takes it right to the upper atmosphere. What does he plan to do when the launch cadence rises and his rockets become a bigger factor in global warming?
  11. Rockets and the Ozone Layer

    But do rockets parts have chemicals that are bad for the nearby sealife?
  12. Rockets and the Ozone Layer

    @mikegarrison Well thanks for the other answers though.
  13. Rockets and the Ozone Layer

    @mikegarrison do rocket parts falling in the ocean pollute?
  14. Rockets and the Ozone Layer

    @mikegarrison positive or negative radiative forcing?
  15. Rockets and the Ozone Layer

    @mikegarrisonHas the water up there been know to affect anything like global warming yet?
