    If I were re-entering in a reworked Apollo Command Module, still attached to the Service Module. after just having climbed out of a Lunar Excursion Module that never should’ve made it to or from my planet anyway, and on top of that was going in without my heat shield facing the right way, I’d be screaming too. :P

    It must be late; I’m always pedantic when I’m dead on my feet. :) Snooze time…

    Yesterday Lola and Oop were back to back. Today they’re side by side. Alley is actually part way sitting on top of Lola. Shouldn’t it be the other way around? Furthermore, as Alain Harper pointed out, they should have jettisoned the service module before re-entry. Then they should have reversed the command module and began re-entry with the heat shield forward. What they are doing here is doing nothing but inviting disaster.

    You people never cease to amaze. This is a comic it’s just meant to entertain, it’s not facts, it’s fun. Or have you forgot how to have fun and laugh. I think the writers are having a good laugh when they pull your chains to see what will get a response from you. But if it makes your day to gripe and complain about a comic, go for it at least it stimulates you to do something.

    Ahhhh…….. jettison the lower rocket motor and turn the capsule around to use the heat shield, before you burn up you dummys.

    Sometimes the comments are as entertaining as the Comic Strips. But those whose comments are full of negativity, day after day, really need to find a new pastime.

    I guess they didn’t want to destroy the warp engine, which would be in the service module. The heat shield is placed on the bottom of the command module because it is better to reenter with a blunt surface than a tapered one. Also, facing the wrong way like this exposes the windows to the heat and pressure of reentry.

    I wonder what size parachute they need to land the service module?

    I recommend 3 months of Rex Morgan MD for those who don’t like it here.

    I think the smoke, flames and scream balloon are a nice touch – very scientifically accurate.
