I came up with the perfect idea as to how to keep the foam from falling off the booster rockets. This isn't Rocket Science, its %!&&$# rigging at its finest. And I am the best %!&&$# rigger on the planet. Phone numbers or addresses to the proper administrations would be appreciated greatly. Thanks Dave

Duct tape?

Of course...it's one of the best manmade things we have.

Duct tape?

I'm sure Nasa has spent lots of money on this idea already. But there is too much weight with the Duct Tape. You would have to design a lightweight skelletal structure for the foam to hold onto. If it cracks, it would not break off. my idea would accomplish it.

One time in high school me and some friends got really freaking drunk and came up with the cure for aids....We didn't have any paper so we wrote it down on toilet paper. Later on we ran out of tp in the bathroom so I wiped my ass with it.

I tell you this so you can do something with your idea. It weighs heavily on my soul knowing all the needless deaths I've caused because I didn't wipe with my bare hand....

Cure for Aids did I hear you say.

They have the cure . It's called reverse engineered HIV . Fight fire with fire approach.

Take the virus and have it innoculate the T-cells so they can't be reinfected. I think they are experimenting with it.

Hell , I thought of this long ago but I am no f-ing scientist.

That's brilliant, except mine was in 1990.

The point is don't wipe your ass with science.

Funnily enough, I actually do know a girl who's an engineer for NASA.

I'm sure she's familiar with it. Whenever we see each other we're drunk, so it's not like she'd remember anyway.

Whatever you do, don't write it down on toilet paper. Bad things happen that way.

I interned with them two summers ago, so I could try to dig up some contact information, though I doubt it'd be much better than what you can find on their website or google.

Are you kidding, we need high level access immediately.
Get the Director on the phone immediately.

Duct tape?

I had this conversation with a co-worker the day after the launch. Imagine that huge booster all wrapped up in duct tape! ROFL

But what's really funny, is we both sincerely felt that stuff would hold baby!!

btw, my wife's cousin works for NASA, some propulusion engineer. No comment from him when I asked if they take work breaks diving into piles of foam.

I went to my 30 year HS reunion this last July only to find that a guy I went to HS( who couldn't be present) is a some type of director on the shuttle launch....... :eek:

He always was a smart ass type student........:D

I'll drop some acid and get even more far-out contacts for you.

Your email will fall on deaf ears and return an autogenerated email . Try writing a email to Bush , same thing.

The real problem though is YOU DON'T USE FOAM ON THE OUTSIDE OF THE EXTERNAL IF YOU USE ALSO USE A SHUTTLE ADJACENT TO IT. YOU PUT THE SHUTTLE ON TOP OF THE ROCKET SO DEBRIS CAN'T HIT IT.

In the next design when they retire that turdy one.
