  • Safety Panel Raises Concerns about SpaceX Falcon 9 Pressure Vessel for Commercial Crew Missions

    01/15/2018 12:28:36 PM PST · by BenLurkin · 6 replies ^ | 01/15/2018 | Jeff Foust
    An independent safety panel recommended NASA not certify SpaceX's commercial crew system until the agency better understands the behavior of pressure vessels linked to a Falcon 9 failure in 2016. That recommendation was one of the stronger items in the annual report of the Aerospace Safety Advisory Panel (ASAP) released by NASA Jan. 11, which found that NASA was generally managing risk well on its various programs. The report devoted a section to the composite overwrapped pressure vessels (COPVs) used to store helium in the second stage propellant tanks of the Falcon 9. The investigation into the September 2016 pad explosion that destroyed...

  • It was fixed! Conspiracies abound over Alabama’s win over Georgia

    For some Georgia fans Monday’s loss to Alabama in the College Football Championship, though tragically heartbreaking, filled them with hope and pride. For other Bulldogs watchers it was deja vu watching a team rise in joy only to crumble in defeat. And yet for others, the overtime loss was the result of a sinister force -- the Big Ten referees officiating the game. Media outlets and fans alike point to a litany of missed calls that allowed Alabama to claim its fifth title in nine seasons. Here are some of the cited incidents of flagrant favoritism to the Tide: •...

    At least one person wasn’t happy to see Donald Trump in attendance for Monday's national championship game. Alabama running back Bo Scarbrough appeared to yell “F--k Trump!” before taking the field, in a video captured by Sporting News. Scarbrough, who wears No. 9, can be seen in the back of the video appearing to shout the obscenity.

    Land Of Ten ^ | 1-9-2017 | Ryan Connors
    Alabama came back to beat Georgia in a thriller to win the 2018 college football national championship, rising from a 13-0 halftime deficit to win in regulation. Tua Tagovailoa tossed a 41-yard pass in overtime to DeVonta Smith to give the Tide a 26-23 walkoff victory and their second championship in three years. The game was a battle until the end, with Alabama kicker Andy Pappanastos missing a kick as regulation ended to give the Dawgs another shot. It followed a game of twists and turns that started with Georgia looking superior after a 13-0 start in the first half....

    Steve Bannon is now at war with the entire Republican Party, with President Trump and his family leading the charge.  After the White House released a volcanic statement from Trump yesterday afternoon -- which very much sounded like it was personally dictated by Trump, probably because it was -- both the Republican National Committee and the Senate Leadership Fund (Mitch McConnell's group) highlighted it as "in case you missed it" emails blasts.  It was practically impossible for anyone in this town to have possibly have missed this story, but the purpose of the amplification was clear: To go nuclear on...

    Alabama's newest Senator Doug Jones took the ceremonial oath of office yesterday from Vice President Mike Pence. Looking on were Jones' wife, Louise, his son Christopher and his son, Carson, who is capturing attention for the withering look he cast at the VP during the swearing-in. Carson Jones, a-22-year-old zookeeper who lives in Colorado, confirmed to The Advocate last month he was gay. The side-eye was directed squarely at Pence, who has a long history of opposing same-sex marriage and equal protections for members of the LGBT community.

    It's only fitting that Atlanta, home to the SEC title game, is hosting the all-SEC College Football Playoff National Championship presented by AT&T. No. 4 Alabama didn't play for the SEC title this year because it didn't win the SEC West, but the Tide will have a chance to finish the season as the best team in the conference and the country when they face SEC champion and No. 3 seed Georgia at Mercedes-Benz Stadium. Georgia, which will be playing roughly 70 miles from its campus in Athens, will be the first team to play a national championship game in...

    The first half of Tide-Tigers III hasn’t lived up to the first two installments that saw Alabama and Clemson trade national championship victories with a composite score of 76-75 Alabama. Instead, it’s been a Nick Saban kind of football game, as the Crimson Tide leads 10-3 at the break in the Sugar Bowl. Alabama completely dominated the first quarter. After the teams exchanged three three-and-outs to open the game, the Tide opened the scoring with a 10-play, 47-yard drive capped by a 24-yard Andy Pappanastos field goal. Alabama forced another Clemson three-and-out on the Tigers’ next possession — Clemson’s third...

    Attorney General Jeff Landry is urging a federal appeals court to reverse an order that is preventing the implementation of President Donald Trump's executive order regulating so-called "sanctuary cities," arguing that such immigrant-friendly jurisdictions "undermine the rule of law and deprive law enforcement of the tools necessary to enforce the law effectively." "We have seen too many crimes occur against our own State’s citizens due to sanctuary city policies; which is why I have been actively fighting back against these policies since taking office," Landry, a Republican, said in a news release announcing that he had joined 10 other attorneys...

    Like AIDS three decades ago, Trump Derangement Syndrome is a new ailment, whose full course of development is as yet unknown. But after a year since TDS exploded on the scene in early November 2016, we can observe the progress of the disease through four stages in certain acute sufferers. This offers hope that we may start to predict how the affliction may spread or, alternatively, extinguish itself, should the rate of transmission to others be slowed by factors we may be able to identify. 1. Denial. 2. Anger 3. Shunning 4. Conversion. As the first three factors combine, and...

    If there is one thing you can say about Judge Roy Moore besides pointing to his integrity, it's that he's a fighter, and in the latest news coming out of Alabama, Moore has filed a lawsuit to block the certification of the Senate election results in which he has been shown to lose to Democrat Doug Jones by about 22,000 votes. Moore has refused to concede the election because he believes there was voter fraud that took place. And how could he not, especially after seeing this guy? Judge Moore released the following statement late Wednesday: MONTGOMERY, Ala. – An...

    MONTGOMERY, Ala. (AP) — Alabama Democrat Doug Jones on Thursday will be officially declared the winner of a U.S. Senate race after a judge rejected Republican Roy Moore's last-ditch effort to stop the certification of Jones' historic upset in a deep-red state. Montgomery Circuit Judge Johnny Hardwick denied Moore's request for a restraining order to stop Alabama's canvassing board from certifying Jones' victory on Thursday. Alabama Secretary of State John Merrill said Jones will be certified as the winner of the Dec. 12 election on Thursday afternoon. He will be sworn in on Jan. 3. A spokesman for Jones earlier...

    Republican Roy Moore, who lost a recent Alabama senate election to his Democrat rival Doug Jones, has filed a lawsuit in an attempt to challenge the result. The lawsuit was filed the day before officials were due to certify Mr. Jones the winner-two weeks after the vote.... Mr. Moore's lawyer said the purposed of the complaint was to "preserve evidence of potential election fraud and to postpone the certification of Alabama's Special Election by Secretary of State John Merrill until a thorough investigation of potential election fraud, that improperly altered the outcome of this election." Mr. Merrill told the Associated...

    A mysterious super PAC that spent millions of dollars backing Democrat Doug Jones in Alabama's Senate race was heavily funded by the Democratic Senate Majority PAC. Chris Hayden, spokesman for the Senate Majority PAC, said Tuesday that the group was the primary backer of the PAC called Highway 31, which spent $6 million on hard-hitting advertising, mailings and other efforts to help defeat Republican Roy Moore. Because of reporting and payment schedules, Highway 31 didn't disclose its donors during the campaign despite its heavy spending. "Yes, SMP was the contributor to Highway 31. There were a few small donations when...
