Rocket Antioxidant

Healthier trips into space.
  [vote for,


For the next trip to space, the rocket pad should be surrounded by three towers, twice as high as the rocket itself.

These three towers should contain:

Goji berries

Wild blueberries

Dark Chocolate





Black berries


Red grapes

Sweet potatoes




144,000 suckling pigs

If there is any anomaly during the launch process, a small solid explosive charge immediately dumps the various antioxidants on either the fire or the detonation and halts it immediately.

The pigs can be recovered for lunch.

       Now that I see this idea in black and white, it seems remarkable that NASA hasn't already done this.

       The exhaust from a successful launch will roast the pigs ...

       I reserve my bun for the rewriting of this idea in epic verse.

       As a researcher with an extensive background in redox biology, I can confidently say that this isn't the worst misunderstanding of the fundamentals.

       As a researcher with no practical knowledge of rocketry, I can confidently say that this is the worst misunderstanding of the fundamentals.

       As a researcher with a practical background, I can confidently say this is a fundamental wurst.

       As a manager, I can confidently say that scheduling launches for just prior to lunch would not be a career-building move.

       As a racket scientist, I can assure you that betting on pigs flying is always a loser.

       As a troubleshooter with scant knowledge of porcine aeronautics I can confidently say that this looks vaguely like fruitcake and meatloaf.

       As a trebucheter with some knowledge of porcine aeronautics, I can confidently say that I hate fruitcake but love meatloaf.

       Little rockets on the launchpad, Little rockets made of aluminium, Little rockets on the launchpad, Little rockets all the same.   

       They have liquids and solids, and hybrids and hypergolics, And they're all made out of aluminum, And they all look the same.   

       And the people sit in boxes, surrounding the launching pad, Those people in those boxes, They like to be safe just the same.   

       And there's bigwigs and there's astronauts, And hotshot young journalists, And they're all made ouf of aluminium, And they all look just the same.   

       And they all want safety protocols, With loads of antioxidants. And they all eat goji berries mixed with artichokes and almond chocolates, and piles of boysenberries and blackberries, which to be honest all look just the same.

       On the technology side i thought about the creation of a gasoline additive that actually prevents cancer or causes greater wellness. gasoline additives are about 3/100 of the volume of gasoline, so an antiknock chemical that makes lab mammals live longer could benefit billions.   

       as far as i remember a modified ironless ferrocene might work. also there is the element Ce, which as CeO prevents neurodegenration. tetraethylCe would be too much $ yet what about tetraethylMg or tetraethylZn?   

       these would at least have the potential (gotta measure it) be harmless nutrients, also of course these might be different tetraalkanish things like tripropylmagnesium or the like
