Keywords here are 'from the west coast'...

It produces 663,000 lbf of thrust compared to the saturn 5 at 7,640,000 lbf or the shuttle at 1,181,400 lbf.

Bloody statistics.

Don't worry Data, it's probably a Tracking Sattelite used to count Wood Peckers or Penguins or even Track Wales, but why you would want to keep an eye on the Welsh is beyond me!!!.

They're finally putting Roswell to rest by launching all the secret stuff they don't want anyone to find.
