@taniwharugby good on you bro, hopefully that comes through loud and clear. If there is even a chance it can help its worthwhile imo. Sadly unsurprised to hear he'd had things rough. Doesn't absolve anyone from being a dick, but it gives you some insight about how they got in front of you.
whats the atmosphere on Mars like? i wonder how different the chopper had to be to fly, or is more similar in density than i think? just the breakability that's an issue?
Thin. I'm staggered that they can do that.
The highest atmospheric density on Mars is equal to the density found 35 km above the Earth's surface.
A Lama helicopter made it to about 41,000ft, 12, 500m (and that was quite an exceptional achievement) so using the earth's atmosphere as a comparison this wee beast probably won't get too high. Olympus Mons is the highest peak on Mars - it's 72,000 feet (21KM) high. Hillary would have fun with that one, Everest is under 9km. I would guess basically zero atmosphere up there, and effectively in space.
Still, wizzing around the surface is still very cool.
@machpants the books are hugely overrated after the first couple. I could not care less if he never finishes the story.
I disagree, I've really enjoyed them. I also enjoy the theory stuff put out by fans. The end of the TV series I loathed
Curry with another 49 as the Warriors beat the Sixers
The play-ins for the West should be good fun
And the 3 he hit on his brother to end the 1st quarter was sweet.
Good win in Philly although they didn’t have Simmons who they usually throw at Steph for parts of the game.
Embiid’s defence on the on ball screen for Curry was shocking
