Something doesn't add up
According to the figures in the article:
Falcon 9 : 9 x 190,000 = 1,140,000 lbs thrust for 8,300 Kg to LEO
New Glen: 7 x 550,000 = 3,850,000 lbs thrust for 13,000 Kg to LEO
ie over 3.3 times the thrust for less than 1.6 times the payload. Why so little increase in payload? are the figures wrong?
BTW disgusting mix of units in this article ( imperial thrust vs metric payload and Kg payload for one and metrix tons for the other) and not a proper Reg unit in sight! - shocking journalistic standards!
