Re: Navigation puzzle
Thank you all. It seems like I have to chalk this up to sheets happen. The problem is that before we turned around I warned everyone that we might have a slow slog back so when we hummed right along my wife goes: "So you don't seem to have this current thing figured out do you"
The lesson from the Icarus story is not about human failing.
It is a lesson about the limitations of wax as an adhesive.
If you have an engineering problem solve it.
