[QUOTE=retina;570293]This board isn't a general news site so I see nothing wrong with highlighting things, regardless of their age. I personally appreciated the short and succinct summary of it.[/QUOTE]

Yeah. I had never heard the term "engine rich" before this landing attempt.

Funny. Seriously. :wink:

We are well are of what's going on.

The "Great" US of A matters less to us than what's going on in other places.

Deal with it. Seriously. :smile:

US significance is on a slippery slope, except that the PTB can still end life on Earth.

Yes!

Vadahak? The camera operator was drunk, or what? (in fact, he is to be commended for how well he followed that airplane, haha, but my neck hurts!).
And to stay ontopic, following this lady's comment on your linked video, I got to her channel and the next video, which won a subscription (I don't give those easily :razz:). Her channel and web page worth a look.

[QUOTE=xilman;570396]Much much harder.

You need to sterilize the top few kilometres of the crust for a start.[/QUOTE]Ending [i]all[/i] life on Earth would be difficult indeed. Ending [i]multicellular[/i] life perhaps less so, and [i]multicellular terrestrial[/i] life perhaps even less difficult. Ending the [i]human species[/i] might be downright easy in comparison.
