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.

 
I love Strange Technology

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.

Compton- So he's given up on ways of perfecting sealing wax?
