Rockets away

Today I found out that there is an actual User’s Guide published online for the SpaceX Falcon rocket:

https://www.spacex.com/sites/spacex/files/falconusersguide.pdf

I don’t feel smart enough to read it, I’m not a rocket scientist after all. 😂

I do want to know (without taking the actual time to read it of course) if I could actually operate the Falcon Heavy if I read the WHOLE manual.

You might be surprised to see that the manual is an easy read…..

@queenofegypt I have a feeling the downside of finding out might be disastrous 😂

For some reason, I don’t think you could operate the Falcon Heavy if you were to read the whole manual.  I could be wrong though.  LOL

Ha! I may need to message this to our nephew who IS an actual rocket scientist (aeronautical engineer) and see what he has to say.

Good to know! You never know when you might need to operate a rocket! 🙂

Hi DM — Was that you on the Anil Dash podcast talking about the early days of OD?  I enjoyed the trip down memory lane.

I feel you are very smart, and could figure a lot  out, but, I think with all the buttons and controls it must have, that could get a bit confusing. So, one might push a button, or turn a knob, and go rushing back down, instead of upward???? 😐

@butterfly4him that is for sure!

DiaryMaster: Oh, that would be very awful, and hopefully could be rectified in time!!!
