Re: 2 thumbs up for mankind

The person/company who starts colonies on other planets, and/or starts mining other planets and asteroids, will win the game no matter what other countries do. Umm, no. The person/company/country that does that, goes broke first. https://now.northropgrumman.com/can-you-really-become-a-mars-land-own...

Re: Just license it as a motorcycle?

I do know in California you can build without a proper VIN and get it registered. Back when 'Popular Mechanix' had all those Build This Car articles people did build and register them, I'm sure most states have a process. In California you register a motorcycle yearly and insure it. You register a m...

Governments do and will lose money. They will lose YOUR money for you and demand more. If you don't have any more they'll push you out of your home so someone who DOES have it can live there and give it to them. So all the squalling back when about the over a decade cost of going to the moon led to...

Re: Audio recording from internet site

It'll cost the same to upload to EMail. Been so long since Windows 7 I'm stuck for remembering that sound recorder, which I probably wasn't using anymore anyway.

I'd consider using ABS, which can be molded with a heat gun, and also have aluminum or steel bolt thread inserts put into it for a very strong attachment to the bike.
There are better ways to bend plastic.

Re: 2 thumbs up for mankind

It took over 120 years to dig out the Sphinx. Probably meant moving sand from more than a mile in each direction because of course sand will seek its' own level and fill in the holes until it was ALL dug out. Much of the work was done by manual laborers because this started at the beginning of the 1...

Re: Emergency landing- engines flameout and Emergency ejection. P-51 and F-82

If you got that for $10k in the 70's you could have turned it over at a profit damn quick. At that time the Air Force was even considering a new version of the Mustang as ground support/attack, though they didn't have the foresight to order any. It would have topped the A-29 Tucano they took up in r...

Since I'm assuming your ride tomorrow is to work and not a test, wouldn't it be better to keep the field weakening closer to the successful 15 rather than to the in question 10.5?

Re: Emergency landing- engines flameout and Emergency ejection

The F5 was the Tiger, but also called the Freedom Fighter because it was the advanced jet fighter that our friends were allowed to buy. It all started with the end of WWII and the realization that jets were going to overtake prop planes for military use. The U.S. Navy could launch some 6,000 planes ...
