Paper bag rockets


My favorite organization.  They threw out physics a long time ago, and just listened to the Popular People within.  My old company did that as well.  I said a long time ago, they couldn't launch a rocket out of a paper bag.  They all design by a committee, or popularity contest.

A long time ago, engineers designed to 1 in 10,000 because they feared a failure in their lifetime.  Not any more.  Nobody is responsible for anything.  Nuclear plant doesn't work?  - Blah.  Entire transit system gone kaplut -- who cares?  Getting colder in the world?  Just ignore the man behind the curtain.

Spacex knows physics.  Let's blow up a lot of smaller rockets before we get to the Grand Mother of All Rockets.  Neat.

 ps.  and this should be a lesson (but it never is) to those who think hydrogen is as easy to handle as natural gas.

pps.  Lions and tigers and bears, oh my!  Lots of hurricanes coming to visit the rocket site.

more:  the hurricanes are being cut off by cold.  That saves them from the 'roll back of shame', which is ironic because our cold air.  :)

final - I like this article - Reference

It was a stinkin' jobs program!
