RE: Direct Reps Meet With Obama Re Ares

The thread title says that Direct reps met with Obama himself. The story says they met with transition team representatives. That is a big difference. The fact that Obama has delayed naming a new NASA administrator is telling - perhaps some people are telling him (correctly) that Ares I is a bad bet...

RE: Chinese Missile To Destroy USN Carriers

Current balistic missile arn't any good at hitting moving targets, because the aim point is fixed at launch. One does not have to move far or fast to get out of the way. One needs to have a warhead that can maneuver in response to a target's motions. That may be possible with a ballistic missile, bu...
