Only if you let it. The Gravity Tractor idea usually uses two ion engines aimed so the exhaust goes either side of the body being towed. The tractor stays in place and there's no unwanted momentum transfer.
They're not sending out an SOS yet...
In the UK at least there are a lot of Grandads happily watch Thunderbirds with their grandsons, and thanks to some strong female characters quite a few Grandmas and granddaughters tutting about having to watch but enjoying it never the less.
There aren't that many 45 year old series still bear watching.
Cambridge still has the tow-away legislation in place just in case. Unfortunately when it was being used the last time it was so successful that it got too expensive to keep the trucks on standby.
Parking enforcement is dealt with at local level which is wh they have access in the first place.
Hmmm, let's think. A space plane fueled by liquid hydrogen. Very cold liquid hydrogen. And lots of it. I wonder what they could use to cool the incoming air?
One engine failure in four Falcon 9 launches, not two. The vehicle has done a test flight with a dummy payload, launched a proper Dragon for a two orbit mission, and now launched two Dragons to the ISS.
This could be very good. Joe Cornish appears in both Shaun of the Dead and Hot Fuzz (OK, in Shaun it's as "uncredited zombie") and seems to have much the same interests and outlook on life as Simon Pegg and Nick Frost.
I can see The Deliverators run being done as a Bond style pre-credits sequence and being awesome...
The second stages land up in orbit and slowly decay, and unlike previous flights there was no attempt to recover the first stage this time.
Actually, you *do* have to warn and the definition of "necessary" is quite tight. Login cookies are fine providing there has been a warning as the act of logging in then counts as informed consent.
And a less often publicised reason: It has proved very difficult to predict who is going to be throwing up once they reach orbit, but two days is almost always enough to get over it. An unmanned craft with fuel to spare could do first orbit docking, but if you've got a crew on board you probably don't want a vomit soaked control panel at the wrong moment.
It's rumoured that several items on the countdown checklist involve confirming the actual whereabouts of Elon Musk...
You'd be surprised. In the UK it generally costs more to get a container from the docks to a distribution centre on a truck than it does to ship the container from China to the UK, and you've still got to source raw materials for local manufacture.
Couldn't find Wikipedia today? The Proton uses N2O4/UDMH, not a fluorine atom in sight. NASA didn't think it was a problem for manned flight as the Titan II used to launch Gemini capsules used N2O4/UDMH+Hydrazine. In fact NASA thought it was safe enough that the launch escape method was aircraft style ejector seats rather than the solid rocket escape tower considered necessary for the Redstone, Atlas and Saturn launches of Mercury and Apollo capsules.
And for bonus points, which College?
