  1. It's necessary to spin your station occasionally
  2. If you attach all the tiles in the same manner, and then subject the vehicle to the stress and vibration of pressure test, cryo-proof, and static fire, you are able to positively identify the zones at highest risk of tile loss. You are now able to adjust accordingly in those areas.

  4. I once flew on one of those, the experience made me wish I was riding on the outside of a Tupolev. Bombardier, on the other hand, makes rock solid regional jets.
  5. Relative to the rest of the combined vehicle
  6. Was about to say, oxyliquit mixtures are often violently shock sensitive
