The physical limitations of railroad tunnels, narrow roads, low bridges, and power lines make overland shipment of oversized cargo extremely problematic, if not impossible. NASA’s Super Guppy offers a practical and economical solution to these problems.
The Aero Spacelines Super Guppy (SG) is a large, wide-bodied cargo aircraft that is used for hauling outsized cargo components. It is the replacement for the Pregnant Guppy.
Another beautiful day, especially the temperature which was around 70 degrees. It was pretty cloudy when we started and got sunnier all day. The wind was light, steady and didn’t cause us any issues. Another fun day launching rockets.
Partly cloudy and chilly day with temperatures from the high 40s into the mid-50s. The wind was variable but blowing hard the majority of the time. It didn’t cause us too many issues and we had a great time as usual.
Had some chuffs, bad ignitors, battery issues, CATOs and lawn darts.
It’s been a while since we’d got together for a launch, 07/03/21 was the last. Lots of rain and scheduling conflicts but it all worked out this weekend. It was in the low 80’s and overcast, for the first 2/3 of the launch, but the winds were mostly calm and we had fun.
The NASA Railroad is at the Kennedy Space Center in Cape Canaveral, Florida. It consists of 38 miles of track connecting the mainline of the Florida East Coast Railway and trackage at the Cape Canaveral Space Force Station.
I grew up seeing these ads in magazines and comic books. I always wondered about them but never pulled the trigger and purchased one. It seems that Sea-Monkeys are brine shrimp (Artemia). They were developed in the United States in 1957 by Harold von Braunhut.
The 4th of July, holiday weekend, was a great time to be launching rockets. The temperature was in the mid 80’s, with the humidity lower than normal, making the breeze feel great in the shade. The winds were not to bad and we had a great time as always.
