ULA has a website named "Rocketbuilder". You can build your own mission based on payload and destination. It's fun to play around with it:

Thanks for watching this video. I'm glad you're here. If you feel like this earns your subscription please click here: How this happened: I messaged Tory "If you ever find yourself with an open lunch I'll buy. No cameras, just rocket geek chat." A few months later he changed a flight one day so we could grab lunch, but he also carved out a couple of hours before lunch to give me a personal tour. He's as cool off camera as he is on camera. He allowed me to ask any technical question I had, and I never even got close to the limits of his understanding of rockets. His technical prowess is something I aspire to. We made a video on the second channel where I interview him about more specific things about rockets, as well as how he feels about competitors. 2nd Channel Interview with Tory about rocket engines, competitors, and business philosophy:

What an inspiring CEO. Not only does he have a personal relationship with his staff, but he has a comprehensive understanding of what they do. Compare that to, for example, executives of public sector bodies.

Very interesting . When you picked up a chip off the floor I was reminded of a story that took place at Boeing Aviation manufacturing facilities , In the 80's Americans forced a group of Russians who were visiting Boeing Aviation manufacturing facilities to remove their shoes , supposedly the Russians had the bottom of their shoes made out of soft rubber in which allowed metal fragments to be embedded in the heel and sole of the shoes , you could say that the Russians we're wearing high-tech spying shoes , apparently it was not the first time that the Russians have use the same trick to spy on the west , they did the same thing at Rolls-Royce engine Manufacturing .

The MC said the rocket technology was not avilable to the general public. “On contrare “. I worked at one of the OEMs in the 80s that was the first company to use solid propellant gas generators for PASSENGER airbags that were introduced in the 1989 Ford Continental. There were many companies involved in the 1980s effort to put airbags in vehicles which turned out to be the technology that continues to this day. Safety finally sold. GM tried in the early 70s but they offered an optional system and dealer marketing support was abysmal and corporate was not much better. This effort was lead by Ed Cole. It was a one man show. He didn’t get much corporate support so the program died. In the 10 off years a small group of engineers across town (as few as 2 in a bad sales year) kept looking at ways to enhance upon airbag design. Previous suppliers were helpful but skeptical. Eaton had made a big investment and got thrown under the bus. They declined to participate. Many small rocket motor and speciality devices companies were interested. Military and aerospace budgets were being cut. I got to visit places that 10 years previous I could only see through binoculars. I ended up with a design responsibility for a component that could be made common across many application. It was an electro explosive device. Where do I start? I got a lot of help from many of the suppliers to the military and aerospace industry and used a modified existing design and my engineering spec was patterned after military specifications. I would be asked, “how do you know that the spec is good enough?”. My response,” I used an existing spec developed for MAN RATED SYSTEMS that would go into orbit and to the moon”. That seemed to be adequate. It was a great experience. I got to meet 2 scientists from the Franklin Research Center when it was in Philadelphia. Their claim to fame was hardening the electronics against electro magnetic and radio frequency interference. They had some wild tests done at White Sands Air Force base. They would get a radar dish pointed at a vehicle equipped with special instruments and irradiate it with 100 watts/ meter squared which was considered the upper level of human tolerance at the time. Measurements would show if any of that power got into the airbag wiring. A little bit did but not enough to initiate or degrade the device. Old engineers love to tell their war stories. With us going back into the rocket business we get a whole new generation of rocketeers.

I'm a bit late to this video, but Destin, I thank you very much for this video. I'm currently studying Aerospace Eng., which has been the dream of my life but I was feeling a bit intimidated with the workload and subsequently lost a bit of my motivation... But this video has helped me erase that from my mind and carry on. Seeing all the amazing things that people can build and that will help us get us, our satellites and experiments into space, is very very inspiring. I hope you keep making great videos like this! Have a good one!
