    170cm? Tom Cruise Mapother IV? Seeing this dude in person, I'd say not. Maybe after being drawn and quartered for a few hours... I'd put him at 5'4" (and that's giving him some leeway). He'd be a...

    I doubt seriously, with over 1.1 billion people, that China has "contained" anything... They kicked out all of the Journalists and most of the epidemiologists.

    That, is Bullshit.

    You don't stamp hardened sheetstock... it needs to be annealed first (and most of it is annealed and passivated before leaving the mill). Stainless Steel alloys work harden...

    There are almost no words for this... This mission was doomed to fail from the start. This was a very high risk patch, and I am amazed it worked at all. There is no way this software could have been...

    My Thoughts on Starliner are summed up perfectly by a poster on Spacenews:

    That's a pretty low bar (~125 PSI, 850kPa) most shop compressors can do that... :laugh: I see what they are doing it for, however. It's one thing to pressurize an aluminum can to that pressure......

    It's official: they are attempting a recovery de-orbit and landing at some point (soon). The service module bus graphic is showing many attitude thruster firings (and for long periods)....

    It is in a stable orbit... the wrong orbit, no fuel left to alter the orbit. Echoing Scott Manley; what is the Perigee? Bueller? Bueller? IMHO: This mission is FUBAR.

    Titanium is a fairly reactive metal. When I worked for Pratt and Whitney, there were many solvents which couldn't be within 3 Feet/ 1M of titanium, Trichloroethane was one of them, Tri-Sodium...

    So, by that logic... hypothetically, if all of the parachutes didn't deploy for the same reason as #3... the capsule would have still made a soft landing, amirite?

    Yeah, if Boeing spent as much...

    OK, Starliner is going to be about 6 months behind, minimum, while the chute issue is tracked down to root and validated as root and then corrected. Moving at "MAX" speed, Boeing had a good, but not...

    NASA is fast becoming a non-entity with their "my way or the highway" and NIMBY attitude. It's going to cost them funding eventually. Orion, mark my words, is going nowhere; it is ~billions~ over...
