If I get to keep the Lambo afterwards, yes.

As for the satellite? What was it really going to prove. $280mil wasted even if it didn't fail.

given that nasa has been mastering rocketry for 50 years and in the past had few problems with launching rockets especially when they are carrying military satallites,why the sudden failure rate?.

would be interesting to see all the failed launches and see if there is a pattern,i suspect its scientific equipment.

im smelling a "rat" again,probably his son or something....


I was just thinking, you are supposed to be astronaut, then you should know the complexities involved, and nothing can be done to prevent a failure, the launch rockets are similar(if not entirely identica)l to the shuttle launch system.

Mechanical problems do tend to arise, mistakes always happen, dont blame them, they did their best!

Just joined ATS so only recently seen this post but if i was the US govt and I wanted to pump a few 100 million into a Black project what better way then to use it on a legitimate project that happens to go up in smoke on take off. Just a thought.
