Here’s the setup—It’s 1985, and after an exceedingly poorly planned and executed Space Shuttle launch from SLC-6 at Vandenberg AFB, the Shuttle’s Solid Rocket Boosters (also thanks to an exceedingly poor execution of the range safety system), land intact…at Disneyland. One landing in the “Rivers of America”—roughly between Tom Sawyer Island and the Haunted Mansion—the other in the “Mickey” lot of the parking area.
Now, my question is: how long will it take to safely remove the boosters (or what’s left of them, after hitting the surface at roughly 50 mph, according to my notes) from the park?
As you might have guessed, I’m on vacation at the moment, so I’m unwinding by asking one of my patented Weirdo Technical Questions™. Anyone wanna bite?
