So many people have told so many others what's not rocket science, I thought it was about time someone explained what is rocket science, so here it is. This is rocket science!

Scientists at Rolls Royce built a gun specifically to launch dead
chickens at the windshields of airliners and military jets all
traveling at maximum velocity.
The idea is to simulate the frequent incidents of collisions with
airborne fowl to test the strength of the windshields.

American engineers heard about the gun and were eager to test it on the
Windshields of their new high speed trains.
Arrangements were made, and a gun was sent to the American engineers.

When the gun was fired, the engineers stood shocked as the chicken
hurled out of the barrel, crashed into the shatterproof shield,
smashed it to smithereens, blasted through the control console,
snapped the engineer's back-rest in two and embedded itself in the
back wall of the cabin like an arrow shot from a bow..

The horrified Yanks sent Rolls Royce the disastrous results of the
experiment, along with the designs of the windshield and begged the
British scientists for suggestions.
You're going to love this......

Rolls Royce responded with a one-line memo:

"Defrost the chicken."

Wonder why Britain never got a man on the moon first?

When the Russian Sputnik was launched, Harold McMillan went to our space research labs declaring 'Cmon lads, lets get one over the Ruskies, surely we can get a man on the moon first, it's not rocket science!'
