To finished I thought I’d share this with you. Does anyone know the link? The distance between the wheels of a Roman chariot set the standard for carts in Europe, which in turn was used as the standard railway gauge. The design of the solid rocket boosters on the space shuttle was limited by the ability to transport them by train to the launch site, which meant passing then through railway tunnels. The width of which were determined by the track gauge. The limitations of the space shuttle is therefore a function of the width of two Roman horses side by side pulling a chariot. Just because something is the way its always been, doesn’t necessarily means it’s right - even if it is difficult to change. And in the words of Mahatma Ghandi, “When you change the way you see things, the things you see change”. Is this an opportunity to change the way we see deepwater?
