He's pretty sneaky, I bet he can get himself out that situation, I mean, it's not rocket science. Wink

sorry about the above comment, I didn't mean to make light of the tragedy, I wasn't aware of the deaths until I saw it on CNN AFTER my comment. Sad

I hope he's ok also.

understood. even in the aerospace industry, not everything is rocket science Happy

still, yes this is a serious, and probably isolated, situation. why it happened at the NASA facility rather than elsewhere - we may never know. The space program and it's ambitions have been greatly injured today, we will grieve, be thankful for what we have, communicate/accommodate in a genuine way, and move forward with new and valuable lessons learned.

yep, as Tom mentioned - I'm in Dallas now.

I found out about the incident when my sister text messaged me during a meeting. I check the news after the meeting and contacted my friends there - they were elsewhere during the incident and okay, but a little confused during the incident as expected.

THANK YOU, THANK YOU, THANK YOU for you concern. This community is soo great and important to me. If I could request something - it is simply to, as much as you comfortably can, make happiness and let it rub off on all you encounter. The world needs more happiness and joy :0)

Very warmest wishes,
