Shuttle’s Time of the Month
Looking closely at the picture of the landing shuttle I posted below, I noticed something weird just above the thrusters. While common sense, reason, logic, and evidence dictate that it’s the deployment of the drag chute used to slow the orbiter from about 215 miles per hour to 68 miles per hour, I’d prefer to think of it as a big tampon.
What’s next, douching the Hubble?
Update: My uppance came over IM
it looks like a parachute cord
tampons go in the other way
maybe you’ve been using them wrong all these years
I suppose I deserve that.
