<about the Super Secret Exemption Plan - SNIP>
That's it? That's the Super Secret Plan? We promise not to build weapons
(disregarding the fact its already illegal to do so) and to notify HSA
if we sell/trade our N or O motors to someone else, and we can get an
exemption Bill through the Senate? Pardon me if I find that more than a
little hard to believe.
Please note that total impulse will affect ALL rocket motors, not just
APCP. A total impulse number in an exemption Bill will open a can of
worms that not even John Wickman wants to deal with. Just as a total
exemption Bill went into Committee and came out with weight
restrictions, a similar Bill which even mentions total impulse may come
out with impulse restrictions which will impact ALL of rocketry,
including liquid fuels, hybrids, AN, and sugar motors. A much worse
choice than a weight restriction on APCP, by far. ANYTHING can be added
to the Explosives List; that's our original problem.
You mentioned in another thread that there are several details to work
out. That is an understatement.
