Was sitting in a motel waiting for a load of tennis ball material in Tempe Arizona headed for Binghamton NY – just about to head out to the pool but wanted to watch the launch before I went swimming – never made it to the pool . . .
Oops . . .
If you research deep enough into the start of the program – the engineers stated one of the downsides to the shuttle program was that statistically there would be one catastrophic failure for every 100 launches – those were the odds going into the program – Don’t know about any of you folks – even knowing the odds I would not have hesitated to climb in and go – talk about one Hell of a ride!!
Have Fun! – Run the Gun! – and remember – Fish Heads are Cheap!!
