what is the external surface area of the payload fairing of the Falcon 9 ?

    $\begingroup$ How exact do you need it? The users guide gives the fairing dimensions, it should be easy to calculate an approximate area. Page 30 spaceflightnow.com/falcon9/001/f9guide.pdf $\endgroup$ Dec 16, 2019 at 15:04
  • $\begingroup$ I'm kinda using it already for approximating a surface area. Needed to verify. I break it into ogive/cylinder/cone for simplification. Although I'd appreciate some actual values(research papers etc) $\endgroup$
