ULA has a website named "Rocketbuilder". You can build your own mission based on payload and destination. It's fun to play around with it:

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: nosections.info/green/pYaRh4F7hIN8udQ/video.html

back in the 1980s I saw the San Jose FMC plant that makes Bradleyand M113 fighting vehicles. Huge plates of aluminum, giant gantry mills, robot welders, over head conveyors with the vehicles hanging under them. There was a massive metal chip handling system in the floor, the chips were sent to a bailer that compressed them into huge blocks. amazing place much like the rocket factory. Sadly long gone

I just read an article about Tory. When he was 9 years old he started building his own rockets. He grew up on a farm and one day he found a bunch of dynamite in a shed on the property. Tory extracted the explosives and created his own SRB’s with it and flew them. When I was 9 I thought I was smart because I could make pink milk with a bowl of Frankenberry.

37:42 But making rockets is not from public money? is not national company? or is private like SpaceX? i mean public service must be tranparent. Or is public service but rented/subcontracted from private company and that is like cocacola-secret.?

The concrete and steel that is just the building itself is amazing to me; the tens on thousands of pounds of epoxy to coat the floors. I mean who do you call to say “hey I need epoxy enough for 20 million square feet.”

Very cool! I worked for Northrop Aircraft Corp. in the late 90's as a internal transportation specialist and was able to move parts from 747 skin panels to F/A 18 bulkheads and complete wing and stabilizer sections all over the place. I was even there when we rolled out the B-2 Bomber. After having seen the operations at Northrop, I later worked as a machinist for a company that made mil-spec components for various purposes. I really love seeing these kinds of plants and especially the aerospace manufacturing procedures that are involved. Thanks for a really fun trip down memory lane.

Tory Bruno has to be one of the most genuine, coolest, down to earth, humble CEOs in this country. Did anyone else notice how deferential he was towards the employees? He kept giving the the credit for making the operation happen to those actually doing it, even though it's clear that he is the brains behind the operation. That's leadership. You can tell the employees genuinely like him, and as well they should. What an awesome video. My level of respect for Tory Bruno shot through the roof. He's so dedicated, but so humble and kind. You couldn't ask more from a leader. Every business leadership program and University in this country should be booking him to give lectures on leadership.
