You think you know rocket science, well bring it.  For the rest of us, better bring your science hard hats for this show. SPACE SMART in 2012 is put to the test. The Wiz, Nathaniel Downes is making his second appearance on the show. Come listen, call in if you want and please, help me understand what he is talking about? Listen to what he said.     “PWR has a long history of successfully mothballing rocket engines and then restoring production at future points. That they have proposed the F-1, last used for the Saturn V moon rocket, says that they see a long term plan for the Space Launch System, for otherwise they would be playing it far safer to continue to purchase the Russian built RD-170 and RD-180 for any proposals. With the F-1, the most powerful single-chamber rocket engine ever produced, on the table, it now becomes PWR's game to loose, for despite its age, the F-1 still holds a special place in the hearts and minds of NASA.”

   I say, bring your pencils, come listen, call in if you want and please, help me understand what he is talking about? How does he know all this stuff, anyway?
