I’m back. I have been on a business trip for the past 2 weeks and have been slack with new entries here. I though I would start with a few gems from the web.
- To start we have this great interview with Buzz Aldrin in WIRED blog. He comments on the new movie “In the Shadow of the Moon”(watch the trailer here) and why the US needs a Space Imperative.
- I know you have heard this during launch commentaries at the Cape. You may hear that the Shuttle is approaching MAX Q then after MAX Q the Shuttle is free to throttle up. If you are perplexed by the meaning of MAX Q read this.
- There is a wonderful question and answer section over at Aerospaceweb called “Ask a Rocket Scientist”. You can get an answer to “What is MAX Q?” or learn about rumors that a cosmnaut was once lost because she skipped off the atmosphere during re-entry
