Slashdot videos: Now with more Slashdot!
We've improved Slashdot's video section; now you can view our video interviews, product close-ups and site visits with all the usual Slashdot options to comment, share, etc. No more walled garden! It's a work in progress -- we hope you'll check it out (Learn more about the recent updates).
Yeah really, considering how long Canaveral had their Saturn V outside exposed to UV and Florida thunderstorms that's a bit presumptuous, the Saturn V was a MUCH more import vehicle and yet for ~40 years NASA themselves couldn't/wouldn't spend the money to preserve it to last even 100 years.
Actually, there is no Saturn V rockets outside in Cape Canaveral. The largest rocket in the rocket garden at Kennedy Space Center's Visitor Center is a Saturn 1B. The only Saturn V on display in Florida is housed inside the Apollo/Saturn V center.
I'm not an expert, but I do have several years of experience with molecular dynamics(GROMACS) and quantum chemistry(GAMESS) software. From my experience, the task of running a simulation using pre-packaged software is relatively simple. The difficult part is knowing enough biology, chemistry and physics to set up a meaningful simulation and being able to analyze and interpret the results. So yes, you could read the software documentation and learn something, but you are attacking the problem from the wrong end.
