She did ?? But I did learn one thing. Ted Turner still has a news channel ? Never knew.  This thing is looking more like a publicity stunt... Hey we have to get rid of this Elon guy...He makes us look bad. Can't we build something? No ! Why Not ?  Well because all of our Technicians and Engineers worth their weight in Hydrazine left. They all work for Musk, Bezos and Virgin... We do have a few old solid propellant boosters in the basement..They may need "O" rings...Oh Oh wait, we have that Titan5 out back and an Atlas...we can bolt them together..Well there could be a delay..Why ? Because Aldrin took it home for a playhouse for the grandkids..Buzz !! Always a pain in the A$$...Always Screwing the Pooch .  Well lets get started..What do we need first ? Well we are out of practice the last 50 yrs...I think we can pull it off 5 yrs behind schedule and 5 times over budget..Perfect..Then what ? We can fly around the moon ? How ? Well we still have that targeting computer and Inertial Nav system out of Apollo 8 ! Great..How many personnel do we need ? You mean qualified ? Yes.... None .... Well lets get started.

   A fantastic Era for Space Travel has begun..but not for NASA . It has long ago hit it's apogee . The swan song was the shuttle. Our future is a South African Immigrant..I'll never forget this interview 10 yrs ago. Oh the Nay Sayers pounced on him. And it saddened him greatly.

Before I started working from home, I would drive past two Saturn V rockets on my way to work every morning.  The Space & Rocket museum here in Huntsville has a life-sized Saturn V mock-up standing vertically in front of the building, and a surplus flight-ready rocket laying horizontally inside a building.  The just resumed Thursday-evening "Biergarten" dinners at the museum, after a couple years' hiatus due to Covid.  I've been for dinner twice this summer.  You can sit under the Saturn V and eat your Bratwurst.  Pretty cool.

The Saturn V is an impressive rocket!  But it, too, does have some of those non-aerodynamic piping/cabling raceways running down the sides.  Maybe not as noticeable because it's all painted white.

Everyone should visit the Saturn display down at the cape, if walking under that rocket doesn’t put you in awe there is something wrong with you!
Never doubt the wisdom of dumb question’s.

 I wanna know what the Un-Aerodynamic Downspout is for ? Toilet overflow ?  Not half the cool factor as a Saturn.
