Apr. 9, 2007- Happy Easter to all!

Hope everyone had a great weekend. Saw “Borat” Saturday. Funny parts to it, but WTF?!? I really didn’t need to see the wrestling scene. That was nasty and uncomfortable to watch. I thought Will Farrell had no shame and would go anywhere for a joke– the scale I use to determine that has just been re-calibrated!

They are pulling the engines on Endeavour and Discovery because mold impression material was found inside them at the turbopump flowliners. The hydrogen and oxygen lines have to be superclean– the pumps spin at over 100,000 rpm and even a small gas bubble passing though would cause them to cavitate and come apart faster than the computers could sense and react to it. Just one of a thousand things that could go wrong on the vehicle in a catastrophic way.

  1. Well, that could be fine, but what about additional choices we’ve got here? Do you mind crafting a further article about all of them as well? Thank you!
