The team plans to avoid almost the first half of the earth's atmosphere by launching the craft attached to a hot air balloon. The rocket will then fire it's engine and detach simultaneously. Interesting approach and believe it or not it gets better."
Thus mathematics may be defined as the subject in which we never know
what we are talking about, nor whether what we are saying is true.
