  • $\begingroup$ That duplicate id for a different rocket with very different boosters (liquid vs solid), and the answer references, characteristics of those rockets (such as the ability to control or predict burn time). While i imagine the answers will revolve around similar trade-offs, i don't think its fair to say this is a duplicate. $\endgroup$ – ANone Nov 28 '19 at 14:43
