A little OT, but is anyone else seriously disturbed by the fact that there are now exactly 666 posts in the official Armadillo q&a? And John himself made the 666th post. You know there has to be some evil design behind that. :twisted:

You are really a space nut when you understand the OM thread.

...and point out a few errors in the OM thread...

...when you use six acronyms in one sentence, and somebody actually understands what in the blue blazes you're talking about:

There was a short article published in AWST about how the AF will support NASA's use of a SRB-derived LV if and only if they continue to use the EELVs -- which sounds to me very much like illegal support of a corporation.

Why, what's wrong with being from Australia? You're no farther from the equator than we are.

Oh, and SawSS1Jun21, don't forget Carrying the Fire, by Michael Collins.

Continuing...

...if you refer to the astronauts by the "class" they were in, such as "The First/Sacred Seven".

...if you recognize names such as Sergei Korolev, Bob Gilruth, and John Young, and know who they were/are and what they did.

...if you know by heart the number of missions, the goals for each one, the launch vehicles used and the engineering basics behind each manned spaceflight program from Vostok to the present.

...if you know the names of places such as Edwards AFB, White Sands Missile Range, Baikonur, Wallops Island, and "The Cape" and know basically what went on at each one.
