NASA's competence in question again - Crack found in external fuel tank foam

I just received this bit of breaking news from an MSNBC feed:

Crack is found in foam of shuttle's external fuel tank
You'd think that if they were going to carry contraband, they'd have the good sense to hide it inside the shuttle somewhere. And boy, are those guys on the space station going to be disappointed.

Re: NASA's competence in question again

I wonder if it is that good "goverment crack"

Re: NASA's competence in question again

The other day you mentioned that you would not be surprised if ASQ came up with the CCD - Certified Crack Dealer Program.
Here you go. The question is now: Will the DEA have input on the go/no-go launch decision?

I believe the correct term is: Certified Crack Logistical Coordinator or the lower level Certified Crack Distribution Technician.

I wonder how you'd gage customer satisfaction for contineous improvement? Outside of process improvements(increase in yield per g of Cocaine HCL, better suppliers of raw materials, FIFO, etc) I doubt getting customer feedback is particularly easy to show improvement.

I don't think that cracks in the fuel tank foam are a big issue really, especially when they are using bathroom tiles from B&Q to protect the whole thing from heat during re-entry. Bit on the dodgy side if you ask me. :lmao:

Well, doesn't the DEA have dogs to sniff for crack? What is the cost benefit ratio for that versus the current inspection method?

What will happen when they switch from crack to crank (methamphetamine)? Will DEA do a FMEA, or do the bureaucrats require FEMA to perform a FMEA?

Is this grist for Tim Folkerts' humorous speech?

That's a pretty major change to the process, that would require a whole new PPAP submission!
