User Asad posted a graph based on rocket science.
His graph indicates that the dry mass of a rocket cannot exceed 100 tons. Is this correct? This only applies to rockets which reach escape velocity.
I am asking because Saturn V had a significantly larger dry mass relatively. So this result would suggest that the rocket was incompetently designed or fake.
According to Wikipedia the Saturn V third stage had an exhaust velocity of 4km/s and burn rate of 0.2 tons/sec. These together make the math over 10x worse than the estimates Asad used and reduce the maximal dry mass to less than 10 tons. SIVB was over 40 tons with payload. This is with the SIVB orbiting at 191 km and 8km/s relative to earth when it attempted to leave orbit.
