    I thought wormholes could not exist so close to a planet. would that not rip the fabric of Space time?

    James, the F-4 was the Phantom. I think the F-16 is the Falcon.

    That is the exact kind of explanation I warned against making by you scientists, the original question was asked, let’s assume by a J6P. Therefore we must assume he referred to the situation in which if he was riding or anywhere near the sat, or on the ground, would he be able to hear that fart from the sat with his own ears, not under water, or attached to a wall. As such the only instrument we can reference in order to explain it, and at the same time not to confuse him, are our ears, while free standing. Any further scientific elaboration will lead to additional beer consumption and likely impairment of the ears.

    Not so much for the J6Ps of course, but bad for you scientists, because more beer consumption and impairment of productivity, mean less funding and less popular support for scientific research. I know eventually I will get my point through with your scientific community, but sometimes I just feel you guys are too smart to understand us.

    You have that backward.

    Typically more beer consumption = more funding. :D I know this part of the equation VERY WELL! :D

    More funding is not the same as more funding for scientific research. As an example, more funding for the advancement of understanding after beer consumption, can cancel out the advancement of understanding as a result of scientific research.

    If a satellite drifts in the sky are no one records the TLE, is it really moving?

    Hey they had a good draft. I saw on ESPN the viewers thought they made out the best of any team. But enough sports chat.

    :backtotop:

    Is it drifting yet?

    Briefly on another topic Sixto, but about the countdown/mission clock on page one. Minor point but I thought in official rocket launch countdown and space mission parlance the countdown clock at any point prior to launch is stated in the negative as "T-minus" something and afterwards always as positive or "T plus" something? :)
