      Cars would be just as bad as these other engines, and because they are more prolific they would have vastly larger impacts. And they were before we started mandating such things. I'm sure you've seen...

      Just keep on failing to attempt to understand the analogy. Sure automobile owners works too. HIV infected, pit bulls. Pick your favorite "it's not dangerous if people don't miss-use it" pet issue....

      They're worse than a car per fuel burned. WAY worse. There's hardly any emissions controlling equipment on them. They're one of the big reasons for bad ozone days.

      Whoa there:
      1. Expansion will cool a gas, but at a constant pressure a cooler gas is going to be more dense than a hotter gas.
      2. Hot or cold the mass flow rate of exhaust must be the same.

      To put something in orbit you actually need to get it going pretty fast sideways. Otherwise it'd just fall straight back down.

      The only way we're going to stop importing cases is if it gets under control in Africa. A travel ban or restriction could easily just make it much harder to help there.

      I really sort of love the shape of this thing. The rear end is a mess...but the side profile is amazing.

      I now imagine a little RWD electric sports car that looked like that.
