    That launch and recovery of the boosters was phenomenal!! If you have any doubts about the greatness of our nation that was a shining example what Americans can do, this was private industry! No government, not the Russian, not the Chinese with all their scientists and full backing of their respective governments have ever pulled something like that off! And the car was a nice touch!

    If the video is "real" the roadster is tumbling and won't make it.

    So I assume that was just a "mock up" for the benefit of folks with short attention spans who have to see things moving because they can't grasp the distances involved.

    Truth be told Elon Mush ain't exactly a stellar example of the power of capitalism.

    Tesla Motors Inc., SolarCity Corp. and Space Exploration Technologies Corp., known as SpaceX, together have benefited from an estimated $4.9 billion in government support, according to data compiled by The [L.A.]Times.

    You are correct in principle, but the reality of the circumstance differs from your perception of what happened.

    I mentioned freedom of speech because I didnt agree with your point of view. I was only using it to make a point of how Awesome it is to live in this great country.

    I dont believe numerous NASA accounts of many past events. Their excuse of not having any of the telemetry information that got them to the moon and back is all I needed to hear to lose 100% faith in what they say and do.

    NASA budget Is over 50 million dollars a day. YES YOU READ THAT CORRECTLY .You think with that kind of budget they could preserve the information tha got them to the moon and back.

    Thank you and all the veterans for your service to this great country that gave me the right to express my opinion without ever feeling that I would be persecuted for my beliefs.


    I will not say anything about this subject further.

    I always remembered the X pats that we chatted with over a stay at a guest house along the Mekong River.(25yrs ago)
    One guy after a few days of general chit-chat he sat down at afternoon drinks (tea/lassi) and after a bit pulled out some photos of him standing beside an airplane. He told the story of it getting hit and I could see the many rays of sun casting holes through the body and the wings.
    They made it back, from a place where they weren't in the first place-so basically if they went down it would not be a reading file for the general service administration.
    It was interesting listening to men that did their part, for their country, have their pension, but don't want to have any part of the system ever again.

    The U.S. gets more than half its electricity from burning coal, and natural gas. About 40% comes from coal. Although you maybe could push a car with sunshine, waterfalls, and unicorn flatulence, making electricity is really all about the BTUs, and coal has the BTUs.

    OK 1320. Where does electricity come from?

    Ask Google says- "About 65% of this electricity generation was from fossil fuels (coal, natural gas, petroleum, and other gases), about 20% was from nuclear energy, and about 15% was from renewable energy sources.Apr 18, 2017"

    There is clean coal and dirty coal. Natural gas can run both power plants, heat the home, run the car. Coal burning cars- not many if any around.
    Coal is dino-era fuel now when there are better choices. But that comes with a heavy price tag.
    We eliminated coal burning power plants in Ontario, the cost of renewable energy has taken the food off of many plates.
    Electric cars are still a toy for the 1% in NA, so the costs of bringing these autos is being done from the sweat of the common workers.

    NY State uses 250 trillion BTUs of hydroelectric from various rivers.

    Which is a drop in the bucket (n'yuk, n'yuk) compared to fossil fuels like natural gas (the biggie) and coal, ethanol, or even nuclear.

    When you look at the strip mines used for lithium, cadmium, and sources for the chemicals used in alkaline batteries they are by no means earth friendly. Not to mention the toxic run-off from the tailings.

    Ask Google, "where does lithium come from?"

    North America has only one lithium mine, the Albermarle Silver Peak Mine, and only one U.S. company is currently producing lithium from brine. Most of the world's lithium comes from brine operations in Chile and a spodumene operation in Australia. China and Argentina are also major lithium producers.Apr 7, 2016
