Soviets: when you cannot get there, just build a bigger booster with EVEN MOAR fuel.
I swear, if they had ever played WH40K, they would have loved the Orks.

I remember working very hard to convince my mother to take me to see this at the drive-in when I was a small boy. We were all settled in and munching on our snacks as an airplane gets bathed in a strange light. All my hard work payed off as all the people aboard the aircraft (including the pilot) began stripping off their cloths and writhing around in a big pile of naughtiness. I think I may have had eight whole seconds of unrestricted view before my mom begins shrieking "What are they doing? OH CHRIST! Lay down in your seat. Put your head down! I said PUT YOUR HEAD DOWN!".

I may have been allowed to see about fifteen minutes of the movie sans nudity, but it was totally worth it.

It's really weird because it would look far less penis-like had they just given the booster just enough girth that it would be a similar diameter as the capsule. That probably would have added a little extra space for larger fuel tanks as well.

Larger fuel tanks = more weight to lift = more fuel needed = larger fuel tanks = more weight to lift = more fuel needed = ....

Unsung_Hero: Is Flesh Gordon worth a watch for more than the presumed nudity?


It's old timey burlesque skit comedy (similar to Mel Brooks stuff... although not done as well) put into movie form instead of a stage act. It is worth watching if that sounds like something you would like, but it isn't for everyone's taste. I like it, but it really is pretty dumb.

The Russians don't take a dump without a plan. . . But frequently the dump and their plans are identical.

It's a sex comedy. You watch it for a laugh.

Unsung_Hero: Is Flesh Gordon worth a watch for more than the presumed nudity?


Oh, yeah, it's definitely worth a watch.

Leaving the soft-core porn elements aside, it's a freakin' *hilarious* send up of bad space opera movies.

Got a cameo appearance by John Hoyt, stop motion animation by Jim Danforth, voice acting by Craig T. Nelson, etc.

Admittedly, it works a little better if you're familiar with the original Flash Gordon serials, but even if you aren't, the jokes and puns are more than enough to keep you amused.

I have the DVD of Flesh Gordon somewhere, bought on amazon in a drunken stupor for an outrageous price. I should probably find it before my kids do.

He played a grizzled old ink-stained wretch news man for a long time.  Some of that character rubbed off on him or came from deep down inside him.

Now, to be fair, one or two of them exploded at some small altitude *above* the launch pad.

Not very high up, certainly, and most definitely not up to Staging, but not *on* the pad.

Saturn V - 100% success rate on the launch vehicle, no failures.
N-1 - 100% failure rate on the launch vehicle, no successes.

They made four launch attempts, IIRC.  Usual failure modes were things like failure of the electronics that tried to ride herd on those 27 first stage engines, or a wrench / nut / other foreign object left in the fuel tanking, or things like that.

These two launch vehicles are a *very* dramatic case for going through the time, effort, and expense of full-up integration testing of the entire vehicle.  NASA could do that for the Saturn, Russia could not do that for the N-1.

It's sobering and instructive to realize that the Falcon Heavy has made coordinating 27 first stage engines seem completely reliable and routine, no mean feat even today.  When I contemplate the 30 - 33 Raptors planned for Super Heavy, and start thinking about the N-1, I just tell myself that SpaceX actually has a good track record on this.
