NASA's OCO - Opportunity Cost

NASA's highly touted Orbiting Carbon Observatory (OCO).

So much promise.

"NASA's new Orbiting Carbon Observatory will measure the amount of carbon dioxide in the atmosphere over any spot on Earth's surface and establish a record of how carbon dioxide concentrations change over time. Observations from the mission will improve our understanding of the carbon cycle—the movement of carbon among its "reservoirs" in the Earth system--and help us understand the influence of the carbon cycle on climate."

Such a loss.
The Los Angeles Times - 2.25.09: A NASA satellite designed to measure greenhouse gas emissions and pinpoint global warming dangers crashed Tuesday after a protective covering failed to separate from the craft shortly after launch at Vandenberg Air Force Base in California.

The loss of the $278-million satellite came as a severe blow to NASA's climate monitoring efforts, as well as the builder of the Orbiting Carbon Observatory, Orbital Sciences Corp. of Dulles, Va.

  4. I would not recommend it. If you have decided that it really is necessary to consume that significantly oil for some purpose, use spoonfuls of
    coconut oil instead.
