SpaceX has been very forthcoming with their telemetry data and analysis, so hopefully we'll hear what happened soon.
But this one is HyperExpensive . . . I wonder how they will maintain breathable air inside the vehicle which is in a near vacuum ?
Which ironically will give them the exact justification to bring in the contractors -
What does quitting do other than fulfilling what management wanted all along??
Because you get to do it on your terms, not theirs.
I wouldn't do "Crunch Time" for $50K/yr unless I was building my chops.
>Ask yourself why Europe uses a ~230V/240V electricity
Apart from the economical reasons as outlined by yourself, I always assumed it was a safety issue. I was taught that current kills not Voltage. A static shock has huge tension but non-existent current whereas a toaster in the bathtub has (relatively) low voltage and high current.
Can a sparky weigh in on this for me?
Not that I'd go licking the sockets in any country.
Increase the voltage (EMF) presented across a load, and your current increases.
So, no, it isn't safer. (Assuming Europeans have roughly the same electrical resistance of their skin as Americans)
The reason electrostatic charge is not normally harmful is because of how quickly the charge is dissipated. (usually microseconds)

No, it just means you are now going to jail for a seat belt (or other minor) violation, so they can then search your vehicle.
Vernor Vinge wrote a novel in 1992 that referred to technology like this as dust motes.
This stupid idea gets floated every few years. It doesn't work, even in theory. Do the math yourself.
I have. No way in hell that is going to work efficiently. 185dB of attenuation from Geosync, best case.
...the plot to a really terrible movie.
Cops are hoping to catch people engaging in illegal sales, and who are actually dumb enough to take up the cops on this offer to use the parking lot as a safe haven? (If you think this isn't possible, look around for stories about idiots calling the cops because someone stole their stash, or the idiots with outstanding warrants who get lured to the police station by the PD running a raffle and claiming the person won an item they can pick up at the station.)
Cops have installed spiffy new facial recognition software in their surveillance system, and they want to start keeping track of the cash transactions that take place via CraigsList?
There is simply no way this is actually a good faith attempt to benefit the citizenry here. None.
One of the main events is a free workshop on using Tor and helping patrons install Tor Browser Bundle on their laptops. Seems those radical militant librarians are at it again!
In other news, the same research group has improved the accuracy of entrail reading by including other internal organs, doubled the accuracy of palm reading by using both hands, and are now hard at work devising ever-larger crystal balls in the hopes of refining their accuracy beyond "total bullshit."
