iPod iChing - Space: will the Falcon Fly?

Ok, friday again and I'm late. So a quickie for the mighty iPod: will the Falcon series of space launch vehicles fly, in that they will have multiple successful launches to LEO or beyond with payloads and prices close to current specs?


  • The Covering: Smells like teen spirit - Nirvana
  • The Crossing: Upfield - Billy Bragg
  • The Crown: Það á að gefa börnum brauð - Ragga Gísla
  • The Root: Blindfullur - Stuðmenn
  • The Past: Proud Mary - Creedence Clearwater Revival
  • The Future: Pads, Paws and Claws - Elvis Costello
  • The Questioner: White City - Pogues
  • The House: Heartland - U2
  • The Inside: Hanging on the Telephone - Blondie
  • The Outcome: Sexuality - Billy Bragg

As always, the Key as explained by Sean

"Upfield" lyrics "I got socialism up the ass" - that should give the Libertarians for Space faction a nice chuckle on the Past.

Well. "Það á að gefa börnum brauð" is a christmas song (children should be given bread) and "Blindfullur" is a ode to being so drunk you can't get home.
Isn't Bigelow a gulf coast company?

So, I read this as progress, but then significant delay, until there is a breakthrough through a non-mainstream alternative.
According to the iPod the Falcon launchers will be late, but will deliver.

How is that for a bold iPod iChing prediction.

The High Priest has spoken.

PS just peaked at the lyrics for White City - for some reason there is a definite motif there of curious topicalness. Mighty is the iPod.
