Amazing load of facts about the whole prep, launch and recovery experience. And most interesting to me was the Hazel project that was lost in obscure bids when the SR-71 won the go-ahead. The Hazel proposal broke the rules of physics then supposed in the intuition of many scientists. Why did the SR-71 Blackbird win the bidding? Ask Lockheed. They are often in the know about large US government contracts. What exactly happened way back when? Thank our lucky stars for SpaceX crowding into the competitive field. I pray JP Aerospace can make sense of the Hazel proposal, and construct a Hazel prototype to learn from. It should prove exciting, and eye opening.

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
