Just thoughts here.

You're 'there,' but what did it take to get you there? A million pounds of high explosive propellent just under your butt.


All be it waaaaay back in the day the 'computer' to do all the needed math had 1/20th of what you've got sitting in front of you, as you read this.

People far smarter than me, and much of it was worked out on a 'slide rule.' If you're 'old' you know what they were and how they worked. Think we called them 'slip sticks,' but that was 50 years ago.

That was truly amazing...and the nice lady that led the tour was great, too.
Fred, thanks so much for posting this. I forwarded to a batch of friends.

Oh, and in my first college math class (1968) we learned how to use slide rules. No little calculators at that time. not for us, anyway.

Fred, Thank you for that.

We live in a complex world, what with fishing, sailing, and skiing seasons overlapping.

Fred,
Was wondering if they're having a space spey clave soon? LOL.
Tax dollars at work. As someone born in the 1930's, I'm still
impressed when I see a jet plane fly over. May our quest for
knowledge never stop!
Best,
