A climate skeptic has filed a civil RICO lawsuit against a bunch of Leftist NGOs. Discovery will be very interesting, if it’s not dismissed.
This is an interesting announcement, in the context of Elon’s Mars speech next week in Guadalajara:
At this stage of the investigation, preliminary review of the data and debris suggests that a large breach in the cryogenic helium system of the second stage liquid oxygen tank took place. All plausible causes are being tracked in an extensive fault tree and carefully investigated. Through the fault tree and data review process, we have exonerated any connection with last year’s CRS-7 mishap.
Makes sense, but still doesn’t sound like they’ve gotten to the root cause.
Just one more reason to not take climate hysteria seriously.
This is great. She just drips with hypocritical sanctimony.
…through formal software verification. This seems like sort of a big deal. Particularly in the era of the Internet of Things and self-driving cars. Of course, the weakest link in security will remain the flawed unit between the seat and the keyboard.
An interesting article, from my local paper, about the renaissance of aerospace in southern California in general and the South Bay in particular. Not sure Interorbital should be included in the list, though.
If I were Chris Carberry, I’d be outraged at this, instead of promoting it. None of those people or companies are going to get anyone to Mars. But they’ll spend billions pretending they will.
I just received a review copy of this new book, which looks quite interesting, given that I personally know almost everyone involved, for decades (though I don’t make an appearance). Should be a good history of SEDS, ISU, and the X-Prize.
Eric Berger reports that they go far beyond Mars.
He still seems to be a planetary chauvinist, though.
