use ten pencils per flight so they don't have to be sharpened? that still saves millions of dollars.


Quoted from above article:

"Both U.S. astronauts and Soviet cosmonauts initially used pencils on space flights, but those writing instruments were not ideal: pencil tips can flake and break off, and having such objects floating around space capsules in near-zero gravity posed a potential harm to astronauts and equipment. (As well, after the fatal Apollo 1 fire in 1967, NASA was anxious to avoid having astronauts carry flammable objects such as pencils onboard with them.)

When the solution of providing astronauts with a ballpoint pen that would work under weightless conditions and extreme temperatures came about, though, it wasn’t because NASA had thrown hundreds of thousands of dollars (inflated to $12 billion in the latest iterations of this tale) in research and development money at the problem. The “space pen” that has since become famous through its use by astronauts was developed independently by Paul C. Fisher of the Fisher Pen Co., who spent his own money on the project and, once he perfected his AG-7 “Anti-Gravity” Space Pen, offered it to NASA. After that agency tested and approved the pen’s suitability for use in space flights, they purchased a number of the instruments from Fisher for a modest price [$2.95 each]."

I don't see what is controversial about my statement... which part of my statement is controversial? 

my doubting of the moon landing or my confidence that the earth is not flat?

doubting the moon landing...seriously, that shit is cray

i find it hard to believe people that are otherwise reasonably intelligent can still believe that moon landings were faked.

mental block?  lack of knowledge the technical aspects? brain washing? wishful thinking? whatever it is.. well enjoy your beliefs.




It's funny, they're skeptical about landings, but not launches. Smiley Launches are the hardest, most expensive part, not landings.

there's little to no gravity, plus you only have to put a few tons down versus lifting several thousand of high explosive but let's not get too technical.

We launch all the time with no problem these days, If all that stuff that came after the launches is so easy, why do we never just throw in the 10% more effort on any one of the modern launches and go back some time? I'm not arguing the moon landing was a hoax here. Just pointing out the obvious followup question to what you said.

90% or more of launches these days are for ruthlessly commercial reasons.

and the next people to make the effort will be doing it for ascendant prestige which means china, not the tired old west. it might even be a private operation.

and that whole era was a freaky anomaly. there's no appetite to push the limits any more. these days it takes airliners longer to fly many places than it did back then. the world's fastest plane designs like the sr-71 and x-15 are over 60 years old now.

Lol, NASA themselves have said the 'lost' the technology to go back, go figure. Any mobile phone has more computing power than available in the 60. Go ahaid and transmit data over that distance and tell me how much power it takes. Go ahaid and to some research of how much a radio station users, and the reach is?

Perhaps it is better that we forget about it. What a phenomenal waste of money, time and talent. NASA would have been better off, and gathered much more useful science by sending umpteen unmanned missions instead.  I feel the exact same way about NASA's current project on sending a manned mission to Mars.

It's all to play to the people. Shaking funds out of social projects takes political will that most of the lobbyist bought puppets don't have so in order to change the flow of the money from being diverted to their assigned agenda (Big Pharma, Insurance...) the people have to give something up and to sell that the people have to have a dream. People don't care about probes or rovers, they want to high five each other when a man steps foot on Mars.


I find way more probability that the moon landing and some of that crap about men going to the moon to be a lot less likely to be true than the nonsense that is spouted out about the earth being flat...

Oh       my     fucking      god
you've got to be shitting me dude....

Oh I c what u did there. Different times words mean different things. When I grew up and still when I/we (my peers) say fags we mean pansies as in no balls. I couldn't care less if you hump a log or a furry.

For me it was always about people acting in a manner that draws attention to themselves that they ought to be embarrassed about, but of course arent, because they were after all trying to draw attention to it. Southpark had it right when they said that people on loud motorcycles are fags, or more traditionally but also appropriate people who act flamboyant, or those people who wear spandex when they ride a bike or people who's cars bounce or make loud booms, those stupid eye lashes on cars, people with a "popped" collar or those stupid hats that have the bill perfectly flat and a sticker still on them from a store in the mall called "lidz". Anything that is intended to draw attention and once it does draw your attention you are like, jesus h christ I wish I never been coerced into realizing that you existed.

https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=K2k4Fsg11-w

Correct, the word is not universal and can be used or misconstrued. When I grew up it was used to rally people to get off their buts and not be fags (as in pansies, afraid to stand up for themselves). I enjoyed that episode. I also can be called a fag in the context of that episode. Smiley the irony. Cheesy


Something that sets me apart from the average arm chair general is that I get off my ass and put my own neck on the line when I see injustice, but I won't do it when I don't think those reaping the benefits of my efforts are worth that effort. I've had the heavy hand of the state depressed on my neck for standing up for whats right and its a thankless job. It really is easier to watch the sheeple become shackled.



All the jew hating on here..my /ignore list is filling up! Smiley

It is all so 'silly' and such a 'generalization' to blame a group for whatever reason....

it's a money thing..those that have and those that do not...money and power concentrate...at least in uncontrolled 'crony capitalism' of the

18th century and standard oil and the Rockefellers etc....seems it is doing so quite rapidly again this decade as well...there will be backlash IMHO,

as it has 'swung' too far ..but we will see...

money has no religion ...it is all about 'power' over others to your advantage.

any other theory is just silly


In this day and age you would think that was a given.

Consider why the jews have been kicked out of 300 different areas in the world over the past few thousand years. What is it that makes everyone hate them. I'm sure you have an answer to share with the class, given how silly the whole thing is. There surely must be a simple and entirely rational answer.

At what point do you stop holding the past against an entire people? Is forever your answer?


I like the famous anecdote about the US's phenomenal talent of wasting money. NASA engineers spent millions of dollar trying to develop a pen that could write in space, or so the story goes. Meanwhile, the soviets used pencils.

I've heard that for years as well. I recently read this about it.  https://www.snopes.com/fact-check/the-write-stuff/

Why didn't they use crayons? What about grease pencils which I think is type of crayon?

Waddafak?

Only 23 of top 100 coins are actually PoW/mineable coins and rest are token crap.  Shocked

Either most of them are not what they seem to be or people lost interest in legit coins which offer mining, fair distribution.

I'll take the third option bob. they just want P&D ICO's

I like the famous anecdote about the US's phenomenal talent of wasting money. NASA engineers spent millions of dollar trying to develop a pen that could write in space, or so the story goes. Meanwhile, the soviets used pencils.

pencil shavings floating around were perceived to be a problem as they could get into delicate electronic packages. hence, pens.

at least there was some reasoning involved. whether it was valid? who knows. NASA (back then) was all about safety, anything that might cause equipment failure was minimized.

They are conductive and apparently in space shit gets anywhere it wants, imagine drowning in a helmet from your own cooling system or being blind from your own tears. Scary shit there.

There is a strong correlation between conspiracy theorists and low cognitive capability.  Make of that what you will. 
hmmm. many conspiracys are later found to be true. wake up people

"Many" = "<0.01%"

Link please. Smiley

I was called out as being a nutjob by my buddies when I claimed we would invade Iraq if Bush got elected. Yeah so some people can see shit others can't and then there really are nutjobs just to muddy the water.
