The only road I will be on is the one to work.
I would drive the three great roads,
Cape to Cairo
London to Vladavostok
Pan American Highway, maybe go all the way from Prudhue Bay to Tierra del Fuego to do it right
Looks like the part that holds the foreword end of a double base grain centered in the motor case.
Star Trek Into Darkness iss on my see list, I am so old I saw the original series the first time around.
I saw Raiders of the Lost Ark on opening day in an empty theater, bad reviews. The next...
It is an Eastern Pacific storm.
I would move to Juneau AK. It never gets hot there. It rains.
I have been in Phoenix area since '68, too many hot summers.
I had a friend from Hong Kong.
“You White People are always worried we are going to feed you a dog”
“We would not waste good dog meat on you”
They list three places in AZ, I would call first to see if they have what you need
Most here buy on line or from Jack, Whats Up, when he is at a launch....
I will buy you dinner the day they land on Mars.
Try a fishing tackle shop.
Since you are near the ocean they should have some really tough stuff in stock and you can look before you buy.
And way cheaper than any rocket shop.
Same thing as last year and 2010, http://www.timesunion.com/business/article/Lion-burger-off-the-menu-4057895.php and http://money.cnn.com/2010/06/23/smallbusiness/world_cup_lion_burger/index.htm ...
I think the oniy page they realy want people to respond to is http://mars-one.com/en/donate
They have no intention of ever sending someone to Mars. Just a publicity stunt.
I am sending...
Good Neighbors know when to shut up.
A friend of mine has a business that buys surplus rifle powders from the government, repackages it and sells to reloaders.
Buying huge miscellaneous lots he...
The horn on my truck will blow continuously for 22 seconds before the fuse burns out.
Always carry spare fuses.
Bigger/rougher/heavier will keep the altitude down.
But the logical solution is just using a smaller motor; it is not like there are truckloads of N5800s just being handed out. Build the rocket...
I bet Neil & Bob did not make the motors.
I would suggest you look at all aspects of the project. Building the rocket and buying the motor just to have no place to launch would be disappointing.
A rocket as you describe is also going to...
At BALLS few years back we had a guy get his arm dislocated by a chute. The story I got was they were out recovering and he picked up the bottom end of the chute lines, wrapped around his hand and...
We had a guy roll his car 30 miles out of Bruno’s on the way to BALLS. He was not hurt but it could have been much worse if he had gone off the other side of the road.
A cow in the road, right.
If one believes wiki http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Qassam_rocket the “Qassam 3” has 20 Kg of a sugar propellant. So if it is any good they would be about 26000Nsec, an O.
Instead of a stability factor based on diameter I prefer one that looks at the length of the rocket. A very short rocket will work at less than one diameter while a very long rocket one diameter is...
Mr. Henneberry is going to need a new boat.
The one he has is going to leak.
I get my black powder from a dealer at the National Muzzle Loading Rifle Association Rendezvous; I do have a BP rifle. The dealer requires a driver’s license and my info goes in a book and I signed...
That is how I did it too.
I have a landmark to use for tomorrow when the moon is not handy
Really hard to see without optics. Found in binos and then without.
When we used to use SU the delay was adjusted, with just a drill not a fancy tool, through the hole in the delay well. Dump the powder, drill to required time by hand, replace powder.
