Son, there's only one thing you need to know: HEMI
Re: not good.
said by GreysAnatomy :It was not paid for, the deal was for In Orbit Delivery and any money Boinc will receive will be from their own insurance, not the customer or the customers insurance.
They built the satellite, it was paid for.
The attempt to direct the blame from Boinc to Sea Launch is flawed by the 40% ownership that Boinc has in Sea Launch

said by BuriedCaesar:Yep
The engines are supposed to be on the bottom of the rocket, right?
Re: Satellite internet
said by ofacesig:Some eastern parts of Europe are like africa and middle east in the way of being war torn and still re-building.. So those countries would benefit from sat inet. (since there is no alternative)
Satellite broadband capacity has never been that great to begin with. I can understand using this capacity for the middle east and Africa. However Europe should know better.

said by Jim Kirk:russian junk?
Thought about e-mailing the contact person listed on the website and let them know their launch platform camera isn't working. ROFLMAO!
That's what you get for using Russian junk.
Hum while we where GROUNDED with the space shuttle crap they where making flights to the ISS to keep it running. Sounds like they are doing good if you ask me.
Big deal its one failure it how you learn

| The Russians DO NOT make "junk". Their stuff might not be as "pretty" as ours, but considering it's meant to be used in really bad weather, and maintained out in the field under adverse conditions, it doesn't have to be "pretty", it just has to work. And it does. This really is "Rocket Science", and things like this happen. It's not any more reasonable to expect 100% reliability from these systems than it is to expect 100% reliability from anything else. These are very complex machines, built to extremely high tolerances, operating at the edge of the technology.|
Besides, the webcam and all of it's support equipment is US-provided.
