SJW Female Inadvertently Admits SpaceX Launch a Huge Success Without Any Women Engineer submitted by InjusticeLeague to news

And the thing flew on the first try. I was there, and it was an experience I'll remember for the rest of my days.

Mr. Musk had expressed the simple hope that the thing got far enough away from LC-39A so as not to cause major damage. That wasn't P. T. Barnum BS as I've heard some say, he was being dead serious. Launch facility damage is a major setback, and this was mostly a learning experience for the future. Controlling clusters of multiple engines is exceedingly difficult, and all I was hoping to see was the vehicle reach Max Q before coming apart.

It transitioned super sonic more smoothly than any STS ever did, like a needle. The vapor plume during transition was beautiful, well defined, and the upper level wind shear concerns of the previous delays were immediately apparent. FH flew beautifully.

I was there to witness Apollo 9 fly as a kid. 49 years later, I just experienced the same feeling again. Let's light this candle.

I'm so thankful I made the effort to be there to see it. If you ever get the chance, go see a launch in person. You'll never regret it.

Edit: Sorry, I forgot why I started writing in the first place. Perhaps there's a correlation between the unexpected, unmitigated first flight success and the room full of testosterone?

Old guy just sayin'.

I signed up here the last time deddit did something stupid (Ellen Pao, maybe?) and tried to stay, but after a month or two I was just talking to myself. Even lurking became boring because there was very little new material, and what did get posted was mostly coming from the other site anyway. This time is different though, and I can never go back. If this place dries up again I'll just read a damn book or something.

I am not a leftist sleeper, nor a shill, or even much of a shitposter. I am, however, tired of being lied to, and told what I can and cannot say, or what I should think. I'm too old for that shit anymore.

Is this real? I mean, really real? Do I feel the tide turning? Will June 8th be a future day to remember? I sure hope so, because I'm tired of holding my breath.
