"Test teams are applying mechanical, electrical and thermal techniques to prompt the valves to open..."

I swear. This is not a Kerbal Space Program quote.

This is a Boeing quote, about their Starliner.


Because this sure sounds an awful lot like “We send the signal to the valve to open while beating on it with a hammer and heating it with a torch” to me.


Gold. Put that on the wall next to ‘rapid unscheduled disassembly’ and ‘we have had an anomaly’. Maybe one of these causes the other? :laughing:
