Built Trident Rocket : 2.6 million dollars

Research, Supplies, Testing : 3.4 million dollars

Nuclear-Powered Submarine and 400 employees : 270.4 million dollars

Fuel : 625,000 dollars

Creating a perfect 3D transition in the air : Priceless !

Some things are breathtaking, for everything else, there's High Power Rocketry.

I think I remember reading something about that; I think they were testing a new suppository?

Good thing NUKES are not impact detonated....
or armed till they home in for the kill....


Of course if that is a test launch... it must be carrying a dummy warhead.

I've been searching for the source site, but so far nada. I can't even remember the page it came off of, but Instability due to shear was what was suggested.

Of course, I'm of a mind that Shamu farted just as the rocket was launched...

Yea, and I'll be that poor "dummy" wished he'd booked a different flight! LOL
