Not the Saturn V and not the Orion.....now I'm stumped. It's the most talked about rocket this year and I'm still clueless. But, I think I've gotten used to that feeling. Gemini Titan?(didn't all that Sheri mess start over a Titan rocket?) The Ares 1x?

It is much bigger than that!

They have been talking about it on all the mainsteam media, blogs, even C-SPAN and Fox News. Big. I have almost gotten sick of hearing about it.

Ares V? Jupiter Direct? Angara? Side-saddle Orion on a Shuttle ET and SRB combo?

Atlas V? Delta IV Heavy?

Unless...

You're talking about the Shuttle itself? That's been talked about quite a bit now that the retirement is fast approaching...

Does the new kit include the initials G and T, and the number 3?

(EDIT: Oops, never mind. While I was writing this post, further discussion took place that made my guess unlikely.)

I am part of the "discouraged worker" force. My last period of employment ended 6 months ago. That job had lasted 2 months. Prior to that, I was unemployed for 5 months. The job that I had before that lasted just under 3 months. Prior to that, I was unemployed for 10 months. You get the picture. Hard to believe that once upon a time I actually did work full-time for 26 years straight without a break in employment. And that when I went home every evening, I knew that I would still have a job when I got up the next day. Seems like a million years ago now.

The X-Prize UniversalHealthCareOne? The SPPTO (Single Payer Plan To Orbit)?

The SLS Bail-Out?

Wait, I just figured it out -- the SLS Rogue!

Huh?!?!

Please don't tell me that it has a silvery color and looks vaguely like a UFO-shaped balloon that someone built in a garage...

(Although, maybe....hmmmm.... )

I REALLY liked Carl's comment about using the wrong "fertilizer" on the money tree; Hilarious !
Hope that motor making machine work is going well.
Really looking forward to burn some Semroc motors in good flavors like B14, 3/4 C19, etc.
