Launch to orbit in real time Fuel Burn and Staging of the Saturn V, Space Shuttle,Falcon Heavy and the Space

  • Red = Kerosene RP-1
  • Orange = Liquid Hydrogen LH2
  • Blue = Liquid Oxygen LOX

Well that was amazing! Never really thought about how wild rocket staging is until just now.

Some rockets had little solid boosters on them to give the rocket a kick in the right direction to push the fuel to the bottom again, some added backpressure into the tanks, some have anti sloshing gates.

This video highlights a neat thing about the solid rocket boosters that the shuttle use.
