"The rocket will burn for approximately 80 seconds, propelling the craft straight up at a speed of about 3,500 kilometers per hour, or about three and a half times the speed of light, to a height of some 50 kilometers (160,000 feet) above the planet."

Haha they made the same mistake CNN made with the shuttle disaster!

"of about 3,500 kilometers per hour, or about three and a half times the SPEED OF LIGHT,"

Thats cool though it looks like were entering a new generation of commercial space flight on Monday. I can't wait till the Luft 46 babies whip out some design claiming it stolen from WWII Germany!!!! http://ubbxforums.ubi.com/images/smiley/34.gif

3.5 times the speed of light... gee that's fast. Oh wait, it's typo. or not, knowing yahoo.

It's barely a spacecraft. And it'll probably blow up.

Would not that need a Warp nacele ? At least like Enterprise A

If brute force does not solve your problem... you are not using enough!

Well, the last paragraph says: "the pilot." Doesn't that tell you it's manned http://ubbxforums.ubi.com/infopop/emoticons/icon_smile.gif

"Looks more like a suppository that a regular rocket"...LOL, that would last about two seconds with my editors http://ubbxforums.ubi.com/infopop/emoticons/icon_biggrin.gif

"So when Diogenes perceived that he was greatly excited and quite keyed up in mind with expectancy, he toyed with him and pulled him about in the hope that somehow he might be moved from his pride and thirst for glory and be able to sober up a little. For he noticed that at one time he was delighted, and at another grieved at the same thing, and that his soul was as unsettled as the weather at the solstices when both rain and sunshine come from the very same source."

(Dio Chrysostom "Discourse" 4.77-78)
