Well they say the engine's have 100,000,000 miles on them but that isn't true. The engines are only used for lift off, , and sometimes for landing. Most of the mileage is in orbit where the engines are off.

Nathaniel Pillar btw, there is grammatical mistake in your comment, thus you failed miserably as a grammar nazi. Jokes on you, mate

At 19 minutes 19 seconds, when you see the two rockets on the launch, look upwards between them and you can see what looks like a meteorite flying past.

...Or alternatively the estimated $20 billion that Americans spend on pizza a year. NASA's entire budget is less than 1% of the entire US annual federal budget. American consumers spend more on trebling their waistlines which is almost invariably inversely proportional in measurement to their IQ.

In order to propel rockets into space why not build them to shoot from a barrel similar to a bullet shoot from a gun. The fuel will have no where to escape than to expand and push the rocket very fast from the barrel into space (an idea).

and the barrel had to be absolutely massive to have enough energy to make the rocket have enough speed to reach space

+gift langa That, plus the g-force from such immediate, rapid acceleration would be very hard on the spacecraft and its cargo you wanted to launch, let alone if it was a manned spacecraft.
There have been proposals for a space guns, which could accelerate a spacecraft to escape velocity, for example the Quicklaunch project. Estimated acceleration, if constant, would be about 1800G, which is a lot of strain on the projectile-like spacecraft (altought it can be made to resist such G-force, if you consider that such a fine and delicate instrument as a mechanical watch can be made to withstand 5000G). However it rules out any manned missions, as (well trained) humans can survive about 10G of sustained acceleration, 45G at peak. 1800G would literally disintegrate the astronauts.
