If your ever bored...

Simply mind numbing stats and engineering whenever NASA comes into the picture...

I must have some diagnose as I can watch Shuttle launches again and again...then start googling for some of the facts about the sound suppression water system..which apparently drops 900,000 gallons per minute or something daft..onto the launch pad to assist the acoustic waves produced by the launch...or the main engines helium purge..
...7 million pounds of thrust..
I mean, come on, if that isn't all frikken awesome what is!!!!
the more you research, the more the numbers get beyond outstanding!
