Stern related beacuse he's been aiming to auger in for years.
In honor, I'm going time it with a splash down in my toilet.
Vaya con dios brave soul
60,000 feet sub sonic ... are the chutes working?
Massive waste of money. Let's put our people to work on the ground rebuilding our highways and infrastructure. Boys playing with firecrackers, is all it is
Main chutes deployed and working at 4000 feet
Splashdown! Stable and upright. Mare than we can say about Madysmom
I love this stuff. I wish they would do way more of it.
Maddysmom was a F-ing nut job.....
Years ago, a couple of friends of mine worked for a sub-contractor to JPL and they built a device for the Mars Rover.
Not sure what it was but, they said it was about the size of a brick and had 400 moving parts.
They were telling me how, they would launch the hardware as soon as it was ready and then, have 2 years to work on the computer programs to run the rover while it was on it's way to Mars.
They had 2 full scale rovers, one that was launched and one that was there with them.
They would write the programs and load it into the rover and then tweak it as needed and then, upload it to the launched rover when all the bugs were worked out.
I found that interesting.
Why not drastically cut military/defence spending then? The NASA budget is just a small fraction of what is wasted on the military, I think it was reported the the Air Conditioning costs for the military is more than the NASA budget.
So you want more people on the government payroll?
would it make you feel better if there were 8 guys standing around doing nothing but watching one guy hit the launch button??
Maddysmom is spinning in her foil hat right now.
One person's tin foil hat is another's "radiation shielding"
