Re: Hurrah for rocket science

I am beginning to think that this whole "reusability" thing is just a political red herring.. as nifty as it would be to have battlestar galactica style orbital vehicles, with current tech, it just doesn't seem as financially practical as biffing a gigantic load of stored energy underneath whatever-it-is-we-wanted-up-there-in-the-first-place..

Re: Hurrah for rocket science

they should be chucking things up there and leaving it up there so that people can use it. how else will we start a space faring civilization. recycling is the key!

they ARE chucking things up there and leaving it. It's called space debris, and it's actually a huge pain in the ass :)
