As much as I hate Windows 8.1, one thing they have done right is greatly reduced the memory load.
So what's the problem. If something needs 8 GB you just put 8 GB of ram in to that thing.
The first article describes Yuanzheng-1 as follows:
The Yuanzheng-1 (“Expedition-1) uses a small thrust 6.5 kN engine burning UDMH/N2O4 with specific impulse at 3092 m/s. The upper stage should be able to conduct two burns and has a 6.5 hour lifetime. It will be adapted for use on the CZ-3A/B/C series mainly for direct MEO/GEO insertion missions (mostly for the navigation satellites of the Beidou GNSS).
This description make it appear that Yuanzheng-1 is nothing more than a typical upper stage, capable of bringing its cargo to the appropriate orbit.
The second article, however, has a concept picture of Yuanzheng-1, a shuttle-like craft that looks to me to strongly resemble the X-37B. Nothing in the second article however contradicts the first, which leaves us with a mystery. Is this upper stage capable of returning to Earth after it deploys its cargo? The fact that the Chinese were unusually secretive about the launch itself suggests that there was definitely something unusual about the rocket itself.
If the Chinese have made their upper stage reusable they have taken a big step to reducing costs in a way that will allow them to compete with SpaceX, should that company succeed in returning its first stage so that it can be reused."

Yes, why stop at fucking up a company...when you can fuck up the world?
Provided that most political figures do not have a strong background in the industry, why would her (failed) experience be a disadvantage, in comparison?
You've seen what the government tries to do.
Then they try the wrong way. Incompetence is only noticed by whom may have the necessary knowledge. That's just a few voters. Not enough to get things changed.
We already have a pretty good idea of what happened to the Germanwings flight even with 1 damaged black box.
Indeed. Every day the poor guy has a new condition: he was depressed, had vision problems, was a narcissist,
Then they'd obviously never been to Paris.
You obviously live in the 9 3 so what do you know about Paris?
