I was hoping to put up another article or two tonight, but I really need to get to packing. I’m flying up to Oregon tomorrow to join Tiff and Jonny, and to attend a wedding for Tiff’s brother James. I won’t be back until Tuesday, and probably won’t have any internet access during that time. And even if I did, I haven’t seen my family in almost a month, so I probably wouldn’t blog anyway.

Unfortunately, I’ve got several half-baked blog posts that are going to have to wait until I get back to be written, probably including my response to Mark Whittington’s comments. I wish I had the time to elaborate on things while they were still fresh on my mind.

But alas…

    sorry, I failed to note that the g-loads and heating data are for worst case ballistic aborts. The max Q is for ascent.
