Launch vehicles “explained using only the ten hundred words people use the most often”.

Bird 9 (a. k. a. Falcon 9)

Space X tweeted a schematic of their launch vehicle a couple of days ago, in the style of Randall Munroe's Saturn V schematic. The next launch attempt, an ISS resupply mission, is in a few hours.

There may be more schematics of rockets in this series I'm not aware of. Drawings not to scale.
