    Thanks for watching this video. I'm glad you're here. If you feel like this earns your subscription please click here: 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:

    I worked in the ULA factory for 13 years! I managed 4 different production areas and can honestly say I never considered a day of to be work. I actually saw a lot of my old friends in the video. The great Jeff Ralph was one of the guys you saw early on wiping don the skin mill bed getting ready to load another skin. I led MANY MANY tours through this facility and always looked forward to the opportunity to tell someone about the wonderful things we did at The Rocket Factory.

    what's crazy is that we are basically throwing stones. rockets are impressive in the measure of the physical feat, but we need to unlock space time if we want to be serious about space travel. Hopefully we will find those answers with the works at CERN and such. I want humans to be ready for that, but perhaps they are not - which is why we are still using rockets to get into space.

    there is another semi-automatic/manual machine to make round sheets, because thatone pressure machine is not good to curve smootly and perfectly sheets, it is used to literally fold things and not to curve.. but the best machine has less costs and is made by 3 roller, 2 on bottom (one static and other dynamic that determinate the angle of curvature) and another one on the top to hold the sheet and that is connected to a knop/handle to make the roller spin and then curve the sheet. so you can get and easy way to do it, less espensive and in less time than that pressure machine.. is talking an 6 years experienced metallurgical sheet worker (modeller and installator/assemblator)
