Re: Banning Bumpstocks, doing good or feeling good?

It's treating the symptoms rather than the disease. The PROBLEM is these mass shootings and what triggers them.... How they're accomplished is at best a distance second concern, because we've seen on other countries where guns are severely restricted or outlawed that mass attacks still occur, only u...

Re: Is "Rocketry Center" gone hooves up??

I checked it again the other day seemed normal, guess it was a server or registry of the domain issue...

Re: Counting down to SpaceX Crew Dragon Demo-1 launch...

Space X could have created a lot more hoopla if they had rigged "Ripley" to wave out the window to the ISS upon arrival. The station crew should have made a "face hugger" out of old paper and tape and taped it to her face plate LOL Course with the cabin camera, it wouldn't be a surprise... In the o...

Re: Counting down to SpaceX Crew Dragon Demo-1 launch...

Well I've had a fun time... Heard a loud pop or bang when I was hitting the brakes on the main highway for the last big turn to come out to the farm Tuesday. Nothing seemed wrong so I kept going. Even stopped and pulled the strap of the bales and rolled it up, then drive on to the farm, fed cows, dr...

Re: Counting down to SpaceX Crew Dragon Demo-1 launch...

Good docking. I recorded NASA-TV from about 4 am til 9 am local time (CST) so I could watch it this evening. Saw they achieved docking this morning, but I had to go to Shiner to take Mom to church and feed cows, so I didn't have time to watch it any further. Neat to see. REALLY clear pictures from I...

Re: Rustoleum- The best of times/ the worst of times

When it comes to spray cans, there's two things to remember... 1) you can NEVER shake the stupid thing TOO MUCH, and 2) warming it up first helps IMMENSELY. The solids tend to come out of the suspension in the can (settle to the bottom) and that dinky BB in there can only do SO much to stir it back ...

Who remembers "Varathane", back in the 1970's ?
I remember seeing that stuff but it was before my time. Grandpa and Dad used it at some point. Was it good??

Beautiful Night Launch :~salud: :USA: :USA: :USA: :USA: Yep... and they named their space-suited test mannequin "Ripley"... LOL:) They also put an Earth globe "beach ball" or something on the center seat as a "zero G" indicator that was supposed to float around in the cabin once they made orbit, bu...

Re: Counting down to SpaceX Crew Dragon Demo-1 launch...

Well, so far so good... just watched it "live" streaming on YouTube from SpaceX's channel and synced with the delayed video of the same feed from NASA TV (they're always late LOL:) Beautiful launch, good staging, first stage reentry and landing on the drone ship, second stage shutdown they said was ...
