This reminds me of my time as a rocket engineer intern

Yes, for those of you who weren’t around here in early 2011, I was an actual honest to goodness rocket engineer for a few weeks.

And the engine I helped ready exploded quite spectacularly.

Much like SpaceX’s Falcon 9R
just did (though ours was just on the ground in a test stand).

But the thing I remember most was that when it blew up, taking the metal building it was in with it, with debris landing a half mile away, the head engineer just sort of nodded and said “Interesting.”
