    Spin Launch

    No... It's not how some of us leave the line at the strip. 🤪 It's a small-satellite launch system currently undergoing testing. I can't understand how this thing wouldn't tear itself apart once the "projectile" is released. Wouldn't it be easier to launch/release TWO at the same time? (One...

    I recently won an eBay auction (Camaro part) for the opening bid of $10. There was a "Buy It Now" option for $65 but nobody else bid and I put in a last second bid for $10.
