Comments: Launch Report - Up Close and Personal Edition

It's a shame you didn't think to get pictures of the look on everyone's faces when that happened :)

And for a useful comment: It seems welding gloves and automatic welding helmets might be useful equipment to have on hand, if only to guarantee you'll never need them again.

You mentioned the nitrous tank seemed to take an unusually long time to fill up. Did anyone confirm if that was, indeed, abnormal, or are they filing that away in the "Hmmm, that's strange," file? Might it have had something to do with the small brush fire?

Next week: Ted experiments with hydrazine and RFNA! Be there or miss the excitement!

Victor, the reason for the slow fill rate was discovered, but it had nothing to do with the launch. Nothing more than a slightly kinked tube.

Whooooaaaaa,Ted!I missed all of that action and adventure yesterday.Glad no-one was hurt.I'll bet Doug woke up this morning smelling burnt hair.That odor will linger in yer nostrils for days.
My own biggest adventure was almost getting konked in the noodle by that Skunkwerks Saturn 5."Look mommy,I gotta Saturn 5 stuck in me favorite hat!Unfortunately it's on me favorite head."
Anyhow this shows how far behind I've gotten in the last few months because I always thought that the largest Saturn was the Apogee which is on temporary production hold.Why?I don't know.That Skunkwerks is major cool though and for $600 it had better be.
Also,I had a great time yesterday hookin' up with my friend Dwayne.Sorry I never got a chance to introduce y'all but we where just sorta going with the flow in making the rounds.We actually didn't leave till well after dark last night.We sat there and bs'ed about anything and everything catching up on news.
Well anyhow Ted it was great seeing you again as well as everyone else too.See ya in a few weeks.
