Re: Envisioning the world of 2100

I've been discussing it in threads filled with NASA people. Former MSC flight directors blog too, you know, and just last night I was having an interesting discussion with one of the engineers who had the numbers of the Columbia foam strike before most others did. Of course nobody has plans for this type of launch, since we have lots of money to throw at the high-expense, low-risk path, but making a flight vehicle change course by 90 degrees isn't exactly difficult, though some people obviously think it's inconceivable.
