Found an interesting article about recent NASA research into candle wax as a viable solid rocket fuel. How cool is that? Candle Wax. Maybe the next big push into space will be power by bubble gum.
Got a little scare last night when the power grid went down around 7:30. I spent the night in darkness, despairing that Guam’s power system will ever become stable. Fortunately it returned a little before 5:00 this morning, rousing me to a cacophony of electrical devices sputtering to life; television, stereo, laser printer, lights, fans, air conditioning and the many other little electrical fairies that surround our modern life. Another dark weekend on Guam.
