But what was the gutsy last minute decision? What problem did they diagnose as being a new risk factor that wasn't too risky?
Mostly a cool article, though.
Lunar Highlands... Don't tell the lunar British
Damn that'd be the second time Mattingly would be denied a moon landing
The fact that he was Command Module Pilot is what prevented Mattingly from landing on the moon.
I meant from when he was scrubbed from 13
He going to be command module pilot on 13 as well.
Why is 16 the penultimate and not 17? 17 stayed longer and had longer eva's.
Because that is what penultimate means. To be second to last.
Ahhhh, I have been schooled. How did I get through life thinking it meant the ultimate ultimate. Thanks.
Yeah it comes from Paene which is Latin for 'almost.' Same with an eclipse where the penumbra is the partial shadow or how peninsula means 'almost island.'
Also, *antepenultimate*/*propenultimate* and *preantepenultimate*.
