(Ooh) All I'm askin' / (Ooh) Is a nominal launch at zero hour (just a little bit)

N-O-M-I-N-A-L, you know what it means so well,
N-O-M-I-N-A-L - take off, ring that bell.

Next time, we only need a Nominal thread!

Something like, Antonio's Amazingly Nominal thread ;)

Given the amount of ribbing Mike "Mr. Nominal" Dorsch has taken over this, we may never hear that word from his mouth ever again...

Another 'N-word', perhaps? :-)

After the last launch, I suspect Chris has a new word to add to the language filter :)

I think Soyuz and Chinese launches use as many "NOMINAL"s as they can, just not in English.  ;)

Don't know about the Chinese, but Russians seem to make flight call-outs every 10 seconds so this still beats them by a hefty margin.

It's more appropriated as "The shiny KEG in space" ;D
Especially if Antonio manages to rustle up a sponsor.
