The strange 3 tube construction is a wind ramp, designed to create a pocket of no wind, or at least to reduce gusts to light breezes. All this for the goal of inflating the Ascender-36, not shown. The inflation was partly successful, about 3/4 of the V-shaped ascender was puffed up. Videos of that ascender are on the JP Aerospace YouTube channel. Best way to access it, go to http://www.jpaerospace.com and click on Videos.

I would lose myself in spinship economics, but for my plan to write fiction with Cle' Curbo. Sometimes I eat food, and sleep. I desire to see the human race mature to care for our mother earth, and wean ourselves to space for her sake. I love to experiment with my garden of earthly delightful plants. I grow heritage apple varieties. I strive to love all the people all the time, but I am not powerful enough to do so. End right side amygdala. Space alien! is like shouting "squirrel" to a dog. The left side of the amygdala is awakened. Care, dream, plan, do. All thinking and doing is by trial and error. 99 point 999 percent of all accomplishments are prep. Find something you like. Love comes later. View all posts by L Paul Turner
