I remember Ade Edmundson getting in trouble for saying fart on Wogan. A few years (ok, maybe decades) later and Saturday morning kids telly were doing a sketch called fart attack.
Give it a few decades more and kids TV will be saying fuck, while some currently innocent words will be banned instead.
No mention of taking groups of people for a week in orbit. If he can get people to Mars for 200k, he should be able to manage that for a reasonable price. Currently people pay tens of millions for a quick jaunt to the ISS and Branson is asking a small fortune for a few minutes of sub orbital flight.
Page 3 quotes lots of "Key Facts" like these...
Between mid-2015 and February 2016, Twitter had suspended over 125,000 accounts
globally that were linked to terrorists. Google removed over 14 million videos
globally in 2014 which related to all kinds of abuse.
So how can they say they're not doing anything against terrorism.
As far as I know, the only design decision made for cost reasons was to make all of the engines and fuel tank segments the same. Which is why these rockets are the same thickness all the way up, rather than the saturn 5 with each stage a bit thinner. But I doubt you'd save much weight by changing that, you still need the same size, only the shape changes.
Reminds me of this...
LISTER: OK, OK. What's Holly spotted?
RIMMER: An unidentified object.
LISTER: You mean a rock.
RIMMER: It might not be.
LISTER: They're always rocks.
RIMMER: Mostly they're rocks, I agree, but maybe this one's different.
LISTER: Rimmer, there's nothing out there, you know. There's nobody out
there. No alien monsters, no Zargon warships, no beautiful blondes
with beehive hairdos who say, "Show me some more of this Earth thing
called kissing." There's just you, me, the Cat, and a lot of floating
smegging rocks. That's it. Finito.
Sorry, can't get the formatting right.
So it detects when it's stood still idling and runs in low performance low emission mode. When under normal use you get decent performance but a bit more emission. Surely it's a pass. Unless you ban them from varying the engine map for different situations. In which case we're back to carburetors and even then only if they have a manual choke.
I know this is diesel so the carb bit doesn't really apply.
I guess its possible to have an RFID reading washing machine that reads the washing instructions and runs the appropriate program. However I can see it going wrong in so many ways. Like complete refusal to wash any of your clothes together because the instructions vary in some negligible way. Washing machine noticing a neerby dishcloth and putting your best shirt through the ulta-violent don't give a toss cycle. Levi recommend aerial, you can't use persil for this garment. Can't contact the server at Levi.com, please try again later. Etc. Etc. Etc.
though Imon-line now, I tried off- line. It seems exactly the same.
Using it to write this is taking ages though.
I think it needs more language Knowledge. It could also used better word suggestion system that knows what letters can get missunderstood.
overall not as bad as I expected, but very slow compared to typing.
Looks to me like at least one big planet near the star, then some small ones before several more big ones. I suppose this kind of fits with the high number of very large known exoplanets that have close in orbits. Though that could also just be down to big close planets being much easier to detect. Apart from the big close one, its a bit like our solar system too.
My biggest conclusion is that I want to see more images like this.
That reminds me of the EHT dance. Everyone knows the moves and the words but doesn't realize it. Then one day tinkering with a car, you get a shock from an EHT lead and the information comes magically to hand.
The dance involves jumping up and down while slowly spinning around and violently shaking the shocked hand while trying to put it under the opposite armpit without stopping shaking it.
The words (shouted in time with the jumps) are Bastard, Bastard, Bastard.
Everyone I've ever seen shocked by an EHT lead has reacted exactly the same way.
