Okay, Good people.....

It has been a pleasure being part ( a small part ) of this Program and watching the Starliner and Rosie come back to mother Earth!

Congratulations to both BOEING and United Space Alliance (ULA). Boeing for the extreme efforts on building a Spacecraft from scratch and in just under a few years along with other test articles. ULA for their magnificent Delta V rocket and upper stage Centaur.

For those that don't know......


ULA’s Atlas V rocket is a workhorse for the U.S. military, intelligence community and scientific researchers. Developed as a modular vehicle, each Atlas V is tailored to the needs of its passenger by adding as many as five side-mounted solid rocket boosters for increased lift performance and a variety of available payload fairings in various diameters and lengths to protect satellites during atmospheric ascent. The high-energy Centaur upper stage, which has been used to send spacecraft to every planet in our solar system, is incorporated into Atlas V to deliver the payloads to their intended destinations.

ULA's flew the Atlas V rocket with a kerosene-fueled common core booster, two solid rocket boosters and the hydrogen-fueled dual-engine Centaur upper stage.

The descent and landing went flawlessly just like their many previous tests with the test article.

Soon we (USA) will have Astronauts Launch from the Kennedy Space Center, Florida again (US Soil).

Wishing everyone a Happy Christmas and a very good 2020 year filled with good Health!

PLEASE PAY ATTENTION!

WE ALL NEED TO CONTACT THE FAA (Congress?) TO SEE ABOUT DISCLOSURE AND TRANSPARENCY!

THIS IS OUR LIVES AND FAMILIES RIDING ON THESE AIR-CRAFTS!

Airlines frequently redact details of the features they opt to pay for or exclude from their filings with financial regulators. Boeing declined to disclose the full menu of safety features it offers as options on the 737 Max, or how much they cost.
