Right, simply forgot the cheesy grin emoticon but what's wrong with tribal electricity on Mars anyway?
Visit the thread. It's a non starter, really. Far too small power output to be worth the mass or trouble. That's according to everyone's analysis of the available literature (which is pretty poor) except one person... er sorry, one "team".
  Hey. They laughed at Newton and Einstein you know.
 Then again, they laughed at Soupy Sales too.

 Never mind.

They laughed at Professor Irwin Corey, The World's Foremost Authority, as well. A true intellectual.

They laugh at everything... Except my jokes. Let me try one on you guys....

SLS is way over budget and way late and Boeing blames everything and everyone except them. Because they got 90% of the max incentives for excellent performance, so how could it be their fault?

... what? You're not laughing?

Yeah, me either.

Well, I think the OIG report explains why EUS development is paused.

A perfect consequence for Boeing's poor performance could be reassignment of the EUS to another company (like BO).

That's *a* possible consequence.  Whether it's perfect or not? I can think of a lot more (but unlikely to actually happen) ones....  wait... cancel that thought, it's crazy.

How is Total Ghost not already part of #dearMoon?


Elon said it was the SpaceX theme song, so I think spaceX is obligates to take them to space.

“The SpaceX theme song by Total Ghost is just too good ... ooh ooh ooh”

I'm laffing... it's too ironic to not get a chuckle... we all know that Boeing have lots of chutzpah, but live on past glories... for which we thank them... just like me, time to let the kids in the room take center stage... Cheers m8ts... 
of course I'm splicing the main brace, and listening to war music while browsing the notices... As my old da, (He'd be 100 this month) would say, Bloody 'ell, it's days like today that, if you don't laff, you'll cry, better to laff...

No need for arguments, FFS! In the past, some have leaned. We will see in daylight later. Nothing (much) to see here. Move along...

I am leaning towards what Matt said.
