    Way cool!  Cooler, actually, than a SSME.  With the Spruce
Goose you have a "flight article"; with a SSME, you might have
a spare part.

    I'm half tempted to forward the NYT article link to my wife with a
subject line of, "Can I have one. please?!"  The only problem is that
I put a premium of actually running artifacts I collect.  SSMEs don't
get the best fuel mileage, but the thrust-to-weight-ratio on my small
Nissan.....!  :-)
