My friend Kyle works for Boeing on the Sea-Launch project. Sea-Launch is a portable, floating rocket launch pad for putting satellites into space. So, if Korea wants Sea-Launch to put a new digital TV satellite into space, and Sea-Launch can go anywhere in the world with water, where should Kyle take Sea-Launch? (No, it doesn't have a steering wheel. It gets pulled by tugboats.) Well, like any scientist, he scratches his head for a minute, then works it out. Grab a pencil and follow along!
