Re: Envisioning the world of 2100
Oh for fuck's sake. Please don't try and move the goal posts. We're not talking about the inherent control advantages between vertical and horizontal flight. We're talking about the engineering fuck whittery of a rocket that takes off vertically while lying on it's side and THEN transitions 90 degrees before trying to achieve orbit. Like I said, go to nasaspaceflight.com and post this idea
. See what kind of reaction you get. There's a difference between "I have talked to NASA people" and "I brought up this idea with them".
Baby, you and me were never meant to be, just maybe think of me once in a while...
