Skail: gsiofa: Why am I not surprised something from the Tesla Motors founders has been repeatedly delayed?

Yeah, it would have been way better if they'd have let it crash, instead.


they bought their tickets, they knew what they were getting into

Kittypie070: SpaceX sure nailed down the abort/safe procedures.

I gotta hand it to SpaceX.

/no, seriously, WTbarkingF, someone actually thought
I was saying SpaceEggs yesterday.

//I am not exactly a happy little camper about that


SpaceEggs sounds awesomely delicious. Too bad that if they're made a reality they'll be just factory-farm eggs made by poor chickens left in zero-G.

And SpaceOmelettes would be pretty much impossible to make.

This is what's wrong with SpaceX.

NASA would fly no matter what. They could have somebody saying "It's too cold for the solid rockets, if we fly today everybody will die" and they would still launch. They might lose a vehicle now and then, but at least NASA could stick to a launch schedule.

Eff this "test the engines" crap.

What I like about this abortion is that the computer did it for them.

Sitting_Duk: FTA

Computer data pointed to usual pressure readings in one of the nine engine combustion chambers under the vehicle.

I know usual readings weren't the norm for NASA launches, but I'm not sure I'd delay a launch to investigate them.


The English have weird names for things. Lorry = bus; loo = can; food = pale, tasteless mush; usual = unusual.
