      Liquid hydrogen as the fuel, instead of the much more common (and sooty) RP-1 kerosene jet fuel. Only exhaust byproduct of LH2 and O2 is WATER !! : ]

    Whoa, it was so powerful. And watchout for that grass fire at 3:01 haha

      If you only launch your biggest rocket once or twice a year, you're gonna fool a lot of dumb grass into growing where it doesn't belong. Not to worry: CCAFS has its own fire department.

    Love the IV but dangit, I am a lover of solids!!! Heck, I love all of it. But a fully loaded Delta with a full complement of GEMS is a personal fav of mine.

      Saturn V, Saturn IB, Titan II, Titan IIIE Centaur, Atlas-Agena, Atlas-Centaur are probably one of my favourites. Also a Saturn V MLV variant with UA1205 strap on booster would be on the list if it would have existed.
