I still know how to use a slide rule, but few do these days, and how could we possibly do it again without slide rules and vacuum tubes????</knucklehead>
The real problem is every penny spent on expanding humankind's reach and knowledge is a penny that can't be used to buy inner city votes. Knuckleheads gotta knuckle-drag...
Israel should build a colony on the moon.
Israel was once a desert, which modern-day Israelis turned into a land flowing with milk and honey.
Why couldn’t a group of hearty Israeli settlers create a similar miracle on the moon?
Now if this “aircraft” successfully lands on the moon, I am wondering if it could take off via remote control from earth?
Think of the opportunities should this be accomplished? The aircraft can be fitted with a high intensity laser and it can be used as a satellite hunter.
“Israel should build a colony on the moon.”
If Israel builds a colony on the moon, the Palis will claim it’s theirs.
Balloons VS Rockets:-)
Right of return to the moon, Al-Lis!Well, Allah is the moon god after all. But he may have some competition from Japans Tsukuyomi.
There used to be a cartoon with a Jew in a travel agent’s office looking at a world map with the caption, “Got anyplace else?”

Thank You for the ping :)
“I dont know if this is part of what youre referring to, but supposedly the blueprints to the F1 engine that powered the booster part of the Saturn V were destroyed.
Supposedly they are gone forever.
Id sooner buy the Brooklyn Bridge than believe that one.”
The plans are all there and isn’t the main issue. The F1 engines were hand built and the people who learned all the tricks of how to fabricate them are long retired or deceased. Building a completely new engine using modern tools and techniques is easier than trying to recreate a handcrafted engine designed by sliderule.
