General Electric Moose: Manned Orbital Operations Safety Equipment


"MOOSE, was originally an acronym for Man Out Of Space Easiest, that was later changed to the more professional-sounding Manned Orbital Operations Safety Equipment, was a proposed emergency "bail-out" system capable of bringing a single astronaut safely down from Earth orbit to the planet's surface."

Thanks Covnitkepr1. I hope you understand that, as an atheist, I have no desire to follow your blog or endorse any kind of religion or superstition. Please do not be offended by this, it is simply a statement of my own personal desire not to spend my time on anything other than reality.
