comment Can airlines dump luggage or cargo mid-air?
I believe that the DC-10 had cargo doors that could open in mid-flight. Not that it was intentional!

comment Can airlines dump luggage or cargo mid-air?
@abelenky: In fact, in 2009 or 2010 an Emerates A340 with 300 passengers on board "got the weight wrong", did a tailstrike on takeoff and broke some things, and then dumped fuel to land again. There was no need to dump luggage. In fact, a mechanism to dump luggage sounds like a great way to make the airplane heavier and have less cargo capacity, plus points of failure.

comment Why doesn't the US use European rocket engines?
@sharptooth: Usually the answer to "why not just copy X" boils down to "we don't have the tools to make the tools to make X". There is a very tall and narrow vertical stack in some industries, and space technologies are probably about as tall and narrow as they come.

@AlexandreEremenko: What would you consider a "scientific era"? One might argue that his could be one of the first scientific observations, certainly a milestone in human cognitive development and a milestone in science.

comment Logging into an AWS EC2 instance from another machine in EC2
@Bazze: No, I'm not running iptables or other firewalls on any of the machines. Just AWS Security Groups. Regarding the link, I see that I've already upvoted that question and answer in the past! I am aware of the IP Address remapping mentioned, in fact that is why I whitelist per Security Group as the post suggests.

comment Logging into an AWS EC2 instance from another machine in EC2
@Bazze: Thanks, I edited the question to clarify that those are inbound rules. As this is not a VPC Security Group, there are no outbound rules. Everything is allowed outbound, there is not even a tab for it.
