Comment Re: call me heretic (Score 1) 180

I liked it, but it's extremely densely written. That denseness is part of what I like- I found the Bene Gesserit entirely believable, and the details of how the ecosystem worked were fascinating to me. Different strokes for different folks.

Separately, I think the BG "Litany on Fear" is masterful, and I find that useful in my own life.

God has promised not to destroy the planet again until the second coming. Ie, no more global deluge

Important Theology Nitpick: the actual promise is that God will not destroy the world via water/flood again. This doesn't mean that He wouldn't use other means, just not *that*.

Comment Craft recovery? (Score 3, Insightful) 77

I'm very surprised that they wouldn't be at least planning to recover the craft - that would give them all sorts of validation about the actual impact (heh) of launch and re-entry, and could help them get to the next iteration faster. I assume they know what they're doing, but TFA didn't include anything approaching a reason for not attempting recovery.
