# 2 ....upward excursion...

Geez, I've got to sit closer to the monitor! Well, after a wide excursion of counters and postings, the original post stands exactly correct, not even a typeo, I think. :)

If anyone still thinks an object can fall from rest 17,000 feet in 29 seconds, or can figure out how the demolished airframe in CIA scenario fall that fast, please speak up.

If Galileo's listening, he should want to know...
