HELL YES.

Say what you will about humanity, but for all we may have gotten and will continue to get wrong, we've been to goddamn space.

So they light the rockets like we used to light bunsen burners in 10th grade ?

NASA's lame.

no.

read the YouTube comments:

* The "sparks" are igniters meant to burn off excess hydrogen gas during engine start but before mainstage (full power) operation. Without these, a large cloud of explosive hydrogen and air could form under the Shuttle. If it exploded, it could damage the Shuttle structure or knock off tiles. These sparks DO NOT "ignite" the rocket engines. Engine ignition is accomplished by an internal "blowtorch" of fuel and oxidizer in each engine, which is ignited with sparkplugs!

Need to find one that captures that weird, almost scream, that the main engines make when they start
