  1. Rand, if you had his job I hope you would be able to speak a sentence that didn’t include the words “money” or “funding.” I think he may have pulled that off a couple of times in the interview, but only a couple. I couldn’t even tell whether he knew rocket engines could work in the vacuum of space or of the perils of chugging and other combustion instabilities, only that he gets to charge the government lots of money for the fancy things Rocketdyne makes. It was not a good interview.

    It makes me wonder what you could get if you convinced Babcock and Wilcox (also overpriced, but not by NASA standards) to make a high pressure hydrogen/oxygen industrial burner with an expansion nozzle without letting them figure out what it was for.
