"But others, such as Sky and Space Magazine editor Dave Reneke, do not
have such confidence in the Russian space program."
"'They call this a ballistic landing. Look, in 40 years of being
involved with space stuff and looking at the space program probably just
about as long, I've never heard of that term,' he said."
Woops! Has Mr. Reneke just revealed how clueless he really is? Maybe
it is not an astronomy term, but it reallly is widely known in
astronautics, since Mercury and Vostok days, IIRC.
