Been nice knowing all of you.  

So, if you're looking for Neanderthals, you better get with it because they're about to vanish yet again.

And way over budget and timeframe. Non-reusable rockets. Faulty parts that break down before first flight.
God bless capitalism and kickbacks!

They launched at 2am so the public wouldn’t see it if it exploded on the launchpad.

There's got to be a graph with speed/acceleration capability of rocket power getting bigger over time that abruptly plateaus with "faster that this and we kill the passengers."

I thought so as well; it IS the most powerful rocket ever built, so...

USA: Hello? EU? There's a massive asteroid heading for a direct hit on earth.

EU: Yikes, but you developed a rocket system to blow those off course, right?

USA: Right. But here's the thing - that cost a lot to develop and deploy. We think it is only fair if you pay half the cost. By tomorrow would be good.

EU: We never got an agreement in place on that.

USA: Yeah, well, we think that under the current circumstances, you will be eager to pay or else the world will get destroyed.

EU: But if you don't deploy it, you will get destroyed too.

I remember explaining to a room full of suits what the internet was, but it wasn’t sticking. So I asked “where are you from?” Tulsa. “OK…here is the weather RIGHT NOW in Tulsa.”
No one got it except this guy in a brown suit in the middle of the room. His eyes got wide and I realized he understood what this meant for the future. 

Same here. Yay that they hit a rock with a satellite. But the implications of 1) being able to identify the dangerous object 2) plot a course towards it that works 3) ram/destroy it so it’s not longer a threat…the orbit/trajectory calculations required for that are mind-boggling - and then to launch the thing, have it find the bad guy, then ram it - and save humanity. 

Holy cow. 



right?
