NASA TV's Gallery Hour is featuring "<i>Moonwalk One</i>", a 1970 look at Apollo 11. Quite interesting actually, if you like seeing things like how the EV suits were made. (No, Wayne, no mention of pogo). <img src="/images/icons/wink.gif" />

You know, that's an interesting point. Though it's commonly referred to as an acronym (Pressure Oscillation, Gee Oscillation), when it was originally coined it was simply a reference to the pogo stick like motion. So it's correct either way (POGO or pogo), much like "duck tape" versus "duct tape": the original name was "duck" in reference to its waterproof nature, but later it became known as "duct" because it is very frequently used in HVAC applications.<p>(I found both of these stories recently while searching the web).</p>

I don't know if it's a gift or a curse - whenever I go online to look up something I seem to find something interesting, but usually totally unrelated. I can't remember what I was look for when I found this but I can gaurantee that it had nothing to do with Duck/t Tape! <img src="/images/icons/smile.gif" />

That's fascinating about the duck/t tape. I wonder if Red Green knows about this?

I recently completed a remodeling project that involved ductwork. I asked 3 professionals about the proper way to seal a range hood duct. In particular, should I use duct tape to seal a potentially grease-laden pipe?<br /><br />The reply was that duct tape deteriorates over time, and is flammable at relatively low temperatures, making it unsuitable for use with critical ductwork.<br /><br />Duct tape is one of those rare products which is useful for every purpose except the one for which it was originally intended.
