SpaceX Using Deep Cryo Liquid Oxygen

A dish best served cold SpaceX uses supercooled, “deep cryogenic” liquid oxygen, or LOX, to propel its Falcon 9 rockets. This is colder than more commonly used liquid oxygen which is chilled only to its condensation temperature. Principle 35 – Parameter Change The advantage is that the oxidizer is more dense, allowing SpaceX to cram more onto their rocket.…
