There were 2 house-shaking explosions just after dawn this morning in Elephant Butte.

Any ideas as to what it was?

To hear Spaceport Authority tell the story, it WAS NOT the Mach 2.5 crash of a rocket launch.

The rocket reached 137,000 ft and fell ummm out-of-control back to ummmm earth and landed in the ummmm desert and ummmm scared the ummm rocket techies on ummmm the 28th.

It launched on Saturday. The front page doesn't say it crashed on the 28th.

Who can afford a newspaper these days? Does it say on the inside if the rocket crashed on the same day it launched? Or later, like on Monday?

Really? Talking to yourself on a forum. And, do you really think it took 2 days for the rocket to fall to earth?

Had to laugh at the name of the outfit that launched the hapless rocket: Armadillo Aerospace. Sure, use the name of an animal most-often associated with roadkill. What's next, Opossum Airways?

I think the $pacePork is covering up a safety issue with inaccurate information. An out of control rocket crashed at Mach 2.5 within 200 feet of bystanders. There is no time to evade something travelling at Mach 2.5.

What if it had drifted in space to crash in a civilized area?

$pacePork is also covering up an incredible rip-off of the taxpayer's money.

Take another swig, Branson, maybe the pain of a bad decision will stop hurting so bad.
