Rocket Physics and Experience with SpaceX
A discussion of my nearly 20yrs in the aerospace industry is presented. Those included nearly a decade at SpaceX and time as co-founder of ABL Space Systems, a launch vehicle company currently developing a vehicle capable of 1000kg to orbit. One interesting experience is leading the propulsion team in creating the Falcon 9 booster you see launching and routinely landing while delivering payloads to orbit and starlink satellites for the future of the internet. Efficiently and accurately landing a 150ft tall pencil is a special challenge and some of the physics involved will be discussed.
