    Thanks for watching this video. I'm glad you're here. If you feel like this earns your subscription please click here: bit.ly/Subscribe2SED 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: irmys.info/more/eYWSiYd9ia14hag/fy-lm-h-y.html

    Destin? As an iron worker that has hung high steel and also built Harleys and hot rods by welding and fabricating I do not understand why in the world they did fusion welding on the fuel tank!!!!!!! That is so much weaker than a filler rod. Whenever you bond to materials together like they did by swirling and heating the metal through preheating swirling and fusing the metals together and then post heating after the metals are fused together it makes it weaker actually. But it does make it as one piece and I understand why they would do that to a certain extent because the weld that it would take to view something that big together would be pretty heavy. That's the only reason I can think they would do that
