The shuttle moves in space via the use of gas releasing jets that produce the required force, and by burning the RSS engines to accelerate.
I'm so thankful for the many ROCKET SCIENTISTS who post on this forum.

From where have you and STOMPK attained your degrees and for whom do you work at present?

NASA?

Thumbs down Re: The Space Shuttle and the ISS are a Hoax!

Is a cheesy ad hominem all that you have? To answer your question, my dad was the head engineer on the Manned Maneuvering Unit used by shuttle astronauts during spacewalks. And I got my EE from the University of Maryland, so yes...I am one of those dreaded scientists you all fear. However, the basic principles of rocketry and spaceflight can be understood by anyone capable of reading. Even my 10 year old neice gets it, so you hardly have to be a "Rocket Scientist".

What do rocket scientists say in stead of "Its not ROcket Science!"?


"Its not like getting a girl!"

No one fears you.

As I said:

Try posting in white.

It's much easier to read.

You have a degree in "Electrical Engineering?"

Talking Re: The Space Shuttle and the ISS are a Hoax!

Yes. So? What degree gives you such authority to criticize the easily understood principles of rocketry and spaceflight?

galexander using the flat earth society is not the best resource. Do you think the earth is flat? I just have to ask.
To answer your question Mr Blee, no I do not believe the Earth is flat, but sometimes it feels like it might just as well be.

Sorry to break the news to you, but a degree in Electrical Engineering doesn't quality you as a ROCKET SCIENTIST.

Nor does it qualify me as a virologist, yet I can read the science and understand it just the same. You might want to pull out your high school physics book if you need an explanation of how rockets actually work.

Oh, and as I said, my father was a rocket scientist and I grew up with the principles of aerospace engineering all around me. In fact, when I was a little kid I held the sample scoop that is currently atttached to the Viking II on Mars. So I do know just a little bit more than the average person.

Books: not just for use as doorstops anymore!

My husband has a BFA degree and I've been married to him for 27 years.

Does this mean that I now possess the same degree?

Reading books about physics doesn't qualify one as a ROCKET SCIENTIST, either.

What is the Viking II on Mars?

Viking 2 - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia

I don't think the scope is still currently attached.

Seems you are not living in the present, EE.
