@Hans N-B

Quite some time ago a friend of the family had an Irish Water Spaniel who was always happy to see anyone, and thus always had much tail activity - the dog was called Wallops, since that was what he did, walloping everything and everyone with his tail. I somehow get the feeling that naming the *launch* facility for rocket testing Wallops is actually quite appropriate. Although I'm quite sure that there is another (cough) tale to the origin of the site name.
