Concrete

Recently, in my "Chemistry for Engineers" class, the instructor was talking about concrete, and how it is ubiquitous in engineering applications. My roommate, who is in electrical engineering, and I, an aerospace engineer, exchanged glances. We were both imagining the use of concrete in our future work.
Ha.

It takes 120,000 cubic yards of concrete and 8,000 tons of rebar to launch rockets from Pad 39.

Yeah, well...

If I can help it, I'll be on the things that actually fly.

I would do the same... :) Concrete is cool and all, but unless you are making an Orion spacecraft, it probably cant be used.
