9. Thanks for the great post.

It is almost beyond belief.. Just amazing stuff..

I have a friend who is an aeronautical engineer or an aerospace engineer or an astrological engineer or something..
He worked at the JPL.-- oh, maybe 30 years or so?? He used to work for Rocketdyne also... I forget how the 2 jobs connected... He's some kinda genius.

He used to work on the space shuttle engines. He told me once there was a problem with something (not the engines) that nobody had been able to solve. He worked on it steady for some 5 years and solved it!!!
Then they fired him(fuckers). Now works for Boeing in Huntsville, AL, of all places...

Elon Musk offered him a job. he said he wouldn't go near the place... Who knows why..
