Payload dimension comparison between launch vehicles?
Does anyone have a list of the maximum dimensions of objects that can be carried in various launch vehicles, eg Falcon 9/Falcon Heavy, space shuttle etc? It would be much appreciated!

I haven't seen a comparative table or anything, although it is most likely out there. Each of the company's websites likely list the data. For example, www.spacex.com has a diagram of the payload fairing with max. sizes and weights near the bottom of every page associated with a particular model. Click on the menu on the left of the home page. and the Shuttle dimensions/weights are on Wikipedia--bay accommodation is 60 x 15 feet and max. weight is 55,250 pounds. Hope that helps a bit.

Ah, that's a very useful place to start, thanks very much!
