Now if they'd discovered that Mercury had a moon, Vulcan would be the obvious choice!
Shih said the service is particularly well-suited to companies that have franchises and branch offices that want to provide a local flavor to their Facebook content, but also must comply with corporate rules and leverage content from corporate and other users in the system.
In other words, they get to approve all comments made on not only their facebook page, but any of their local franchises, or the local users of those franchises. So if I go to my local McDonalds and get crappy service and decided to later post that on the local McDonalds facebook page, the corporate office AND the local franchise would have to approve my message before it was displayed for others to see.
However, as we re-enter manned space exploration, we will be looking for heavy-lift options that don't actually exist today, and those present the opportunity to develop new methods.
I think you mean "if" we re-enter manned space exploration. The U.S.A. has completely lost it's technological edge when it comes to space flight. Sure, the military probably has something up it's sleeve, but NASA has, um, nothing that can get a human into orbit after Endeavour's final flight in late April. Sure, they're talking about making another man-rated heavy lift launcher, but they've been doing that for the last 3 decades with nothing to show for it.
I'll be shocked if we have a new heavy launch vehicle actually produced by NASA in the remainder of my lifetime. More likely; a private company will have a heavy launch vehicle that can be man-rated, but never will be due to the lack of cash the U.S.A. has to spend on such things.
Sorry to be a buzz kill, but the glory days of manned U.S. space exploration are over.
