Re: Timelapse of ISS/NAUKA incident, ISS doing a FLIP

Well I read in one of the astronauts books who flew on the Shuttle/Mir program (back when the shuttle was flying up to and docking with MIR pre-ISS and we were paying for our astronauts to live on Mir for months at a time, and we sent up a whole retinue of astronauts in sequence to fly on Mir... It ...

Re: The Fall of Afghanistan

Traitor Joe... what a complete mess. I just hope when they inevitably hit us again, that whatever they do lands square in his lap and he and his ilk on the Hill are the first to go... We've become a laughing stock and emboldened every enemy we have around the world... they're ALL gonna start coming ...

Re: EV's has anyone given this a thought?

Let me preface this post by stating I have nothing against being green (ecologically minded), but think most Greenies need a branch shoved up their nether regions because of their insistence that we all be as sensitive as them. I haven't driven a motor vehicle in almost three years and a lot of my ...

Re: EV's has anyone given this a thought?

There are several political agendas at the moment, none of which will secure the nation or the planet. Don't waste time wondering how they think any of it work in reality or will help the projected plan. People waste too much time wondering :?: :?: :?: about the smoke and mirrors. It always has and...

Re: Back to work!!

Congrats on getting a job. Hope it works out well for you.

Things are certainly a mess and I don't know how much longer it can continue the way it is before something inevitably and irretrievably breaks. Later! OL J R :)

Re: First things first, it's the brush!

True... :) Kinda like how HPR guys will blow $300 bucks on a motor for a single flight, then b!tch, p!ss, whine, and moan about having to burn $20 bucks in gas and drive 2.5 hours out of the city to a HPR capable field... LOL:)

Later! OL J R :)

Re: The Cantina ahead of its time?

More and more, new venues for free speech have cropped as a response to the oppression of free speech on the internet. http://www.Rumble.com to compete with YouTube, http://www.Mewe.com to oppose Facebook, http://www.Parler.com to speak when twitter won't let you; and others. To these and the other...

I can only hope that the current administration has as much of a positive attitude for our space program as the previous administration. I don't what part Vice-President Biden played in NASA during the Obama tenure, but let us hope he wasn't the one who wished to pursue such an anti-space sentiment...

Re: Duck and Cover (with a mask)

Okay this is a pet peeve of mine, so here goes. Duck and cover had a purpose, and it was good then and it's STILL good TODAY. It is equally effective for both nuclear and NON-nuclear large explosions, as well as most natural disasters like earthquakes, tornadoes or hurricanes or other destructive wi...

Re: Corporations starting to become political...

I think *decent* people are FINALLY starting to have enough... I've seen a lot of "pushback" against Coke and people deciding to vote with their dollars and BOYCOTT them and other businesses that foolishly decide to push their own agenda rather than try to sell their product to the broades...
