F9R & grasshopper were ballasted to a weight within the throttle limits of the engines, even empty...
Slashdot videos: Now with more Slashdot!
Way to go there, champ: When you cannot address the fact that the study made claims with what should have been clearly evident invalidating flaws, use one pirouette after another to avoid addressing the flaws themselves. What's next? A criticism of my grammar or punctuation?
The topic is not ocean acidification (which no-one is contesting), it is whether the species extinction which occurred after the Permian mega eruptions are uniquely incumbent on acidification due to augmenting CO2 levels without attempting to take into account (for starters) the accompanying sulfur & ash emissions would have on the global climate.
It's not attacking the messenger when one points out that a position has invalidating flaws (nor is it when noting that such flaws should have been self-evident).
So, in your opinion the climate effects of sulfur and ash from mega volcanoes sufficiently active to cover a surface equivalent to Europe is directly equivalent to the passage of CO2 from 300ppm to 400 or even 500ppm. Care to justify what is clearly an enormous mistake? How about trying to explain how any serious scientist could make such a mistake?
Please do so without referring to anyone capable of making such an elementary mistake in a derogatory fashion, we wouldn't want you to again ignore the forest because of the trees in the way.
Because side-stacking has been proven to be an inherently dangerous technology?
Because the shuttle launch-refurb-refurb-refurb-refurb-refurb-refurb-launch cycle has been proven to be extremely costly?
Because the cross-range capability that wings add has zero utility and even the AF which forced it's adoption on the shuttle doesn't want it anymore, other than for two x vehicles that they have launched a grand total of twice?
Because the shuttle was only 1970's tech and only somewhat viable at great effort & cost?
Because, contrary to your misguided opinion, no-one in the last century had the guidance and computer capability necessary to make landing a first stage reliably possible?
Because the rational among us are glad to see the end of that white elephant?
The Idiots publishing this "study" also completely overlook any side-effects of gargantuan volcanic eruptions on the climate. Atmospheric CO2 causing acidification is apparently the same the same to them as as gigatons of Sulfur. Climate effects of all the ash in the atmosphere? No incidence, apparently...
Non-use of the _trademark_ for a commercial product puts the trademark,up for grabs after 30 years. This is what is happening here.
Did I say that CP was a solution for the general public or covered all cases? No. I said that CP is generally useful in the absence of anything better in the browsers to the
Other than junking the present certificate system & replacing it with something else, do you have a better suggestion than CP? Anything useful today?
Unless this has changed, deleting the ingrown CAs in chrome & Firefox has little effect as they reappear if you quit & relaunch the application. It's why I installed the Certificate Patrol plugin which at least lets me see when certificates change.
That any of the "trusted" CAs could issue a cert for any site is why we should all be using the Certificate Patrol or another equivalent plugin that also notifies when ANY certificates change instead of just blindly accepting them. It adds a little admin to browsing the web as I have to accept/reject expired certificates.
In a number of cases it has alerted me when on client sites that they perform SSL inspection so that I can avoid using anything sensitive like banking.
Well of course, better US than THEM, no?
First the Chinese with their ASAT test that polluted LowEarthOrbit with thousands of fragments. Now the europeans want to zap a asteroidal moon! when will the madness stop?
(/humor) for the slow witted...
I never used it for it's intended purpose but I found the cuecat (along with a 50 line perl script) to be a great help in cataloging all my books years back.
Do you think that there are few women in tech because many of us found the pink OMG Ponies theme to be funny? The surprise & amusement that we felt in discovering the pink theme is no more sexist than the humor we all felt when a previously bearded colleague came in clean shaven one morning.
OMG Ponies! was funny even if it's been a loong time.
It, being Space-X's planned MCT in case that wasn't clear.
