OT- As a matter of fact, it IS rocket science.

Post by Batty den »

NASA and Stanford University have developed and tested a new parrafin-based rocket fuel. The by-broducts of combustion are water and CO2.

I like the ides that the Shuttles solid boosters can be throttled back or shut-down/restarted.

Makes me kinda home sick - that's one of the 3 mondo huuuuge blimp hangers at Moffett Field in the background. I used to drive past them all the time and thought they were just too cool.

CYa!
