Falcon Heavy analogue

Hi, when I'm reading this correct, the Falcon Heavy simply uses “parallel staging” for the first stage, as all engines are started in the first stage and after the booster run out of fuel they are jettisoned. Now “asparagus staging” with only one booster pair is identical to the “parallel staging”. — XZise (talk) 12:16, 1 March 2013 (CST)


The Rocktopus mk1, shortly prior to its "Unintentional Midstage Disassembly". No survivors.

I have 2 suggestions: For a very serious sounding title, I recommend "Radial Staging" or "Radial Crossfeed Staging". However, Whenever I have a rocket design that is 8 outer rockets mounted to a central rocket, I prefer the term "Rocktopus". Ninenineninefour (talk) 12:20, 2 March 2013 (CST)
