So Get Over It!
A prime number (or a prime) is a natural number greater than 1 that has no positive divisors other than 1 and itself. A natural number greater than 1 that is not a prime number is called a composite number. For example, 5 is prime, as only 1 and 5 divide it, whereas 6 is composite, since it has the divisors 2 and 3 in addition to 1 and 6. The fundamental theorem of arithmetic establishes the central role of primes in number theory: any integer greater than 1 can be expressed as a product of primes that is unique up to ordering. This theorem requires excluding 1 as a prime.
He was a Systems Integration Planner for the “Service Module” (the SM part of CSM) at North American Aviation in Downey, California. He helped put a man on the moon. Pretty fuckin cool, uh!
Thank you, you are now in my database.
The Space Shuttle main engines burn liquid hydrogen and liquid oxygen. Each engine can generate almost 1.8 meganewtons (MN) or 400,000 lbf of thrust at liftoff.
The Space Shuttle’s rocket engines are capable of operating at extreme temperatures. The liquid hydrogen fuel is stored at −253 degrees Celsius (−423 degrees Fahrenheit). However, when burned with liquid oxygen, the temperature in the combustion chamber reaches 3,300 C (6,000 F), higher than the boiling point of iron. The main engines collectively consume 3,917 liters (1,035 gallons) of propellant per second. They can also be gimbled (turned) and throttled between 67 to 109% of their rated designed thrust.
…and during launch that look really fuckin cool!
Here we see how the extra dimensions described in quantum theory looks in real life. As you can see, time-space is warping around its self. This is also called “folded symmetry” and if you look at it long enough, you’ll puke.

“Anything you dream is fiction, and anything you accomplish is science, the whole history of mankind is nothing but science fiction. ”

Back in the 60′s they use to have these vacuum tube testing machines in your local grocery store. You could put your old tube in the correct socket, flip the switch and see if it needed replacing. I soon learned that if you put your fingers across several sockets at the same time you could get a nasty shock. Needless to say I only did it once!
