This would be a great technology for the planet, and off planet. I wonder what it will cost per pound when they scale up production?
How it’s about to disrupt the telecommunications sector.
Massively, I suspect.
…is economic. It’s a battle between products of the mind, and tangible objects.
Why it has the greens running scared.
If you think I’m rough on it, let Casey Handmer tell you what he really thinks.

I just read the whole thing, and it’s (justifiably) brutal, particularly toward Boeing.
I’ve tried to interest AEI in doing more on space policy, and it looks like they’re trying. I know it’s short notice, but this event starts in a little over an hour.
Well, this is terrible, if true.
Hard to imagine a worse pick. He’s the father of the mother of all Big Monster Rockets. His astronaut nickname was “Ballast.”

The politician who said that politicians shouldn’t run NASA wants to run NASA.
They (and those on the ground) were very lucky. If that shrapnel had angled up a little more, it would have hit the fuel tank in the wing, and they’d have probably been a fireball. I wonder if the engine was still providing thrust?
The BMW has been running rough, and the OBD says that it’s misfiring on #6. I changed out the plugs, and swapped the #6 coil with #5, to see if that moved the problem. It didn’t.
Next step (since it’s two decades old, with 180,000+ miles on it) was to check out and clean the injectors. So I spent a couple hours figuring out how to get them out, cleaned them, put on new O-rings, and reinstalled. Now #2 and #4 are leaking at the rail. Now I’m wondering if it was a mistake to change the O-rings, but I’m just scratching my head at how, as hard as they were to get in to both the port on the head, and the rail, they could be leaking.
