I've been super busy with school this semester -- no time for Atheist Nexus, sadly!!
If anyone who's around here a lot wants me to toss them moderation privileges to run this group or anything, just send me (Sara) a message! Thanks!

Removed ability to send mass messages to everyone in the group. At 1000+ members, that seems like asking for spam.

Offer still open if anyone active in the group wants moderation privileges, but it appears everything has been going smoothly with all kinds of great discussions without moderation. Fantastic! :)

I don't know, Wild guess, perhaps they realized that they could save money if they moved it faster (less turnaround time) and in the horizontal position they would be able to move it faster - significantly less wind resistance and no worries about it tipping over from inertia when it starts or stops either.

Whatever the reason, if any public discussion board would have the answer, this one should, so I look forward to finding out!

Does anyone know why SpaceX rockets are moved to the launch site in a horizontal position, then raised to a vertical position, instead of the way NASA does it, which is to move the rocket to the site in a vertical position.

I've searched for an answer, but found none.

Thanks for pointing to that article Gary.

Very cool - I would think an exchange of technologies as well as genetic infusions countering the tendency of small villages to inbreed...

I enjoyed this read and hope others do as well.  Research has now found that us homo sapiens have been on this planet for at least 300,000 years:
