Part 13: Test-article integration

I find it odd that hot exhaust will ram into Teststand structure.
turning engine axis by 90 would be helpful.

These guys remind me of my father-in-law.
He's obsessed with perpetual motion and free energy systems. He's constantly busy in his workshop, trying out a new idea that he swears will generate more electricity than it uses. Listening to him explain his latest idea always gives me this pounding headache, as I always notice the elementary rule of physics or major flaw in his plan.

We actually humor him now and leave him alone. Because he's happy and it keeps him busy. And if by some miracle he does figure something out - we'll be rich!

These guys are either going to blow everyone's minds, or blow someone up.

Sic transit
http://www.parabolicarc.com/2017/11/13/arca-space-ceo-arrested-charges-embezzlement-fraud/

Interesting is that ARCA was accused in 2012 by Romanian media for all kind of wrongdoing.
That include embezzlement fraud also connected wrongly ARCA in failure of cubesat Goliat by ROSA.
ROSA  is  Romanian State Space Agency while ARCA is privately funded and had nothing to do with Goliat program.

More Interesting is Anova Technologies.
That Communication firm specialized in WIFI technology like Laser or millimeter wave length transmission.
What interest has Anova in ARCA and  Dumitru Popescu  ?

Oh by the way
