You have a head start.

Good coffee I'd more important than oxygen or sex.
Re: How is the U of M supply truck doing.

Mark Thomas "did" Mcdonalds with a tank in his C4 TV programs (I think it was in the 80's or 90's).
Cloud; not now we thave Foreign Intelligence Surveillance Act Amendment Act

“"When you wake up in the morning, Pooh," said Piglet at last, "what's the first thing you say to yourself?"
"What's for breakfast?" said Pooh. "What do you say, Piglet?"
"I say, I wonder what's going to happen exciting today?" said Piglet.
Pooh nodded thoughtfully.
"It's the same thing," he said.”
Has anyone thought of the volatiles that may be removed from the propellant at these low pressures? I’m sure that something will come off, the low temperature will help stabilise things. But it should be considered.
Water in REHAB is a good idea, Water in the Vac pump is not
When I worked in a lab, we always used a "cold finger" (http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Cold_finger) filled with a mixture of dry ice & acetone to condense and freeze any water vapour immediately before the pump to protect the vac pump from water. If not removed, this water can form an emulsion with the oil in the pump and this is not good news. Try removing “butter” from the pump as I had to as a new lab technician when I forgot to put the dry ice in the cold finger…
Because you are interested in the pressure around the motor, the point at which you measure that pressure should be as close to the motor/main chamber as possible.
I think everyone should play dead as soon as an image grabbing car is spotted, could add some interesting images...
