Helium fun

Great article. But it makes me think of all the crew giving orders and radio chatter in high pitched helium voices.

One for the pot

I'd like to see the term " Moving forward" added. The wankers that sprout this would be lucky to move anyware if it wasn't for the peons that accually do the moving. I have found it used a defence for " I don't want to know about the past , this is how we will do it now" . This normally precedes a period of pending FAIL!

Tiles & Bricks

big yes to the NASA tiles , I have one here ... Its called LI-900 Shuttle tile Insulation or in full Lockheed Insulation 9lbs per cubic foot. Its dense but brittle and can handle the temps mentioned handling over 100 repeated temp cycles. from -170 Deg F to 2300 deg F.

There is a black borosilicate glass coating that is applied to the outside surface of the tile to re-rediate 90% of the heat. This coating also protects the porous tile material from rain, fluid contamination ( not sure about jet fuel) salt spray and handling damage.

I think it would need to be strengthened a bit more to cover the rough landings experienced at sea.

Thanks to NASA and my trip to Kennedy SC for that info.

whats wrong with the ISP email!

As most ISP's in Oz also supply you with an email address or a couple ( up to 5) WFT would you be using Gmail? Even traveling you can access those accounts from the web.

Unless of course your using the webs from a library/cafe and don't have a home internet connection.

I have one for each pocket, today I'll use the arch window.
