    Lightbulb Bent: I found your Mecca

    no not Librarian school, a rocket store!!! I pass this place on my commute, finally stopped by with the internet-phone.

    looks like the perfect side gig for ya. Work here part time then buy 'em out and spend your golden years here tinkering on booster engines.

    Agreed! I thought the first one looked quite precarious.

    Saw a special about space exploration on PBS. It seems all the old guys who had developed the Apollo program were dead or gone. Some of the technologies they needed and had developed, no one had any recollection of. Nasa had actually gone to that shop and bought back some of thier old stuff to reverse engineer.

    Yep, Nasa had gone to the same shop looking for some of thier old technology. Wish I could remember specifics but its been awhile since I saw it. Forget what new project it was for.

    cuz the first rockets were engineered by men. We're alway thinking w/ our peckers.
