Elon Musk's SpaceX team logically and humorously explaining the termination of it's 400' tall moon rocket.

Wonder how many of us have had the same experience in our hobby............. Smile

Brings to mind "The Saga of Billy's Flying Fool"...which STILL holds the prestigious
"Breezy Hill Award for the Most Complete Aerial Disassembly in which the Ground's Only Role was to Stop the Pieces from Falling"

That C/L biplane is repairable, can live another day when done. OTOH, I witnessed a large R/C ARF biplane return to kindling about 8 years at the old MADS field, before the city relocated it within southwest corner of Ned Houk Park. It was large, may be a 5.5 - 6 foot wingspan, in bright red covering, a thing of beauty.

It took off, was about 50 feet AGL, then stalled, came down nose first. There were so many lightening holes in its balsa and hardwood sheet pieces, that it literally blew apart. Plastic pilot bust died. Sad

lol!

i find it very interesting on the "social media" all the folks dancing with joy at "elon's failure"

it makes me wonder when we forgot that scientific progress requires risk and failure.

Society today is now so caught up in ABSOLUTE SAFETY, that we dont advance. at all

Nat Geo published a well thought out article on why this was not the "catastrophic fail" all the pundits want it to be
https://www.nationalgeographic.com/science/article/spacex-starship-rocket-launch-space-elon-musk


I wish we could get back to science, advancement, and inspiring kids to become engineers,
instead of Us-vs-Them, and arguments about who is a man or woman.

Short of wandering over to the Red Neck Zone:

We also post our enjoyment of this hobby, which gives us something positive to look forward to, because it is good wholesome relaxation and and outlet for expressing creativity and gratitude.

Tired w/ Coffee Read Stereo Hats Off This Site Rocks!

These sound like the same people that said "You'll never be able to land a rocket"

I was amazed the first time I saw that. It's going to topple over any second now............and it didn't.

I get both National Geographic and Smithsonian magazines. Both very liberal in content but some very great science articles. Watch their TV shows too.

Early on, I "suffered rapid disassemblies" mostly Ralphs "Hollow Logs". Caused some griefs because at 50 cents an hour earned at a poultry farm it was a significant expenditure. I think economics made me try harder.
