NASA - True Story

NASA - True Story

Sometimes it DOES take a rocket scientist ...

Scientists at NASA Space Administration have developed a gun built specifically to launch dead chickens at the windshields (windscreens)of jet airliners, military jets and the Space Shuttle, all traveling at maximum velocity. The idea is to simulate the frequent incidents of collisions with airborne fowl, in order to test the strength of the windshields.

British engineers heard about the gun and were eager to test it on the windshields of their new, high-speed trains, so arrangements were made.

But when the gun was fired, the engineers stood shocked as the chicken:
(1) hurtled out of the gun barrel;
(2) crashed into the shatterproof windshield smashing it to smithereens (bits); (3) crashed through the control console;
(4) snapped the train engineer's backrest in two pieces; and,
(5) embedded itself into the back wall of the train engineer's cabin!

Horrified, the Britons sent NASA the disastrous results of their experiment, along with the designs of the train windshield, begging the US scientists for suggestions.

NASA's response was just one sentence: "THAW OUT THE CHICKEN."
