N1 Rocket: Soviet's First Launch attempt to the Moon

Published on Jun 14, 2018

The N1  was a super-heavy-lift launch vehicle intended to deliver payloads beyond low Earth orbit, acting as the Soviet counterpart to the US Saturn V. It was designed with crewed extra-orbital travel in mind.

Wow, great effects, and kudos for the sound track - that was a nice touch.
If we don't continuously lower the cost to access space, how are we ever going to afford to expand humanity out into space?

I just clicked on this as I'd subscribed thinking "ooh, N1".  Missed that it was first flight recreation and so was terribly disappointed when it exploded.  ::)

Very good job, really. The explosion quite surprised me, I assumed the author gonna showed us stage separation and the like.

Minus points for not portraying hot staging. I'm pretty sure the gaps between stages in N1 are there for the same reason they are there in Soyuz...
