[edit] Information

The two giant ships of Sea Launch, a NASA-like mission control and a launch pad floating on the ocean, form part of an outrageously expensive, multi-national venture for blasting commercial satellites into space. It's a story of spectacular engineering successes, and a couple of costly failed launches.

A satellite delivered by a rocket that is launched from the earth’s equator instead of any other place, can have its lifespan extended for as much as 3 years. This would mean huge savings for the companies that own these satellites. Thus the Sea Launch was constructed. The Sea Launch is made up of 2 megastructures, a floating launch pad called the Odyssey and a shipping vessel called the Commander. The episode gives a brief history of the construction, the successes and the failures of the Sea Launch.
