These are fake comments. It's a hoax.
(doesn't mean there was no approval, just that these comments aren't the verification)

The article mentions that there are no emissions. The problem with high mass,high rotating speed storage is the tendency to fracture and fly apart. When this happens there will be many frangible emissions flying around. Squat low momma they a shootin' waist high.

Really... Spoken like someone with vast knowledge. The Space Shuttle Main Engine turbo machinery spins with large mass at comparable speeds yet we have never blown up a main engine. We have tested it to the limits and fired this engine for over 20 years.
But wait, there's more...the other US launch systems Atlas & Delta - RS68, MA5A, F2 on Apollo, J2 on Apollo, X33, all rotate turbopumps at comparable speeds and never flew apart during flight.

Yeah,brain dead one. That's why everyone is using them in their homes,right? How many tragedies have befallen the space program over the years? Apollo 13 a stirring motor at what 24V was powered by a 'new' 48V system. Worked real good til it sparked in the O2 tank. Are you the one responsible for the o rings on the 86 shuttle?
