More robot adventures:

Space Robot TEDP due: T-1 day!

Tonight I've been working on the hazard analysis for NASA. They want to know if the robot can explode, catch fire, freeze, go berserk, poison people, zap lasers, crash the KC-135, warp the fabric of space-time, bounce gravitron beams off the main deflector dish, etc. This involves filling out a lot of forms to demonstrate that increasingly unlikely scenarios (like, the robot's thruster exhaust poisons someone) aren't going to happen (the thrusters use compressed air. Very toxic. :) ).

In the same vein, I would like to present some hazards NASA has not given me forms for that are more likely than poisoning someone with normal air:


  • The robot takes a likin' to that purdy lil' sonochemistry reaction chamber in the corner and goes a-courtin'.
  • Aliens abduct the entire plane and demand a lifetime supply of red licorice twists and the head of Britney Spears.
  • One of our flight crew gains mysterious superpowers as a result of being exposed to zero-gravity.
  • A rave suddenly happens and everyone gets all groovy in their NASA flight suits, until the machines dig through the ceiling.

Current Mood: smartass
Current Music: Lionrock- Peace Repackaged

I would like to propose a highly improbable situation in which the space robot is transformed to a large potted plant, and simultaneously the KC-135 discovers that it is really in fact a sperm whale.

AAAAAAAAAAAAH! You incomparable dork!

So, when I asked if you guys were doing any actual *work*...

;)

Of course we were! We were glueing tiny mirrors to the space robot! In case of spontaneous rave, of course.

o/~ GYRE went a courtin' and it did fly, mm-hm, mm-hm.... o/~
o/~ GYRE went a courtin' and it did fly, pressure thrusters by its side... o/~

o/~ It took Miss Sonochem on its bracket, and said, "Miss Sonochem, would you like to exchange packets?" o/~

I think a rave in the vomit comet is a GREAT IDEA.

If you have one, can I come?
