J.J. Abrams Talks 'Star Trek'

Monday, December 29th, 2008

J.J. Abrams, director of Star Trek, posted on the movie's Facebook page that the film should be locked next week, only a few days after its original release date of Christmas. The movie's release was bumped to May 8, 2009.

"We're just making final tweaks to the movie--we should be totally locked next week," Abrams wrote on Dec. 22. "Then we're going to flash-freeze it so it's totally fresh for you in May. I can't wait for you to see the movie. The cast is awesome. The action and effects pushed the stunt team and ILM beyond their limits. I'm so grateful to this cast and crew--and to all of you for your interest and patience. We'll continue to update this page with new info and exclusives, so check back when you think of it. In the meantime, have a happy, healthy, fun holiday!"

shamelessly lifted from Fr Frog's page on btciisalls comes this bit of not-so-trivial trivia:KE of the M829 APFSDS-T (Armor Piercing Fin Stabilized Discarding Sabot-Tracer) 120mm round. It throws a 9.41 pound (that's 65,870 grains), 1.06" diameter, 31" long, depleted uranium dart at 5480 f/s from the 120mm M256 smooth-bore tank canon on the M1A1 and M1A2 tanks. Lets see now -- KE (ft lbs) = (W * V ) / 450240. That gives us (65,870 * 5480 * 5480) / 450436 which boils down to (hold on to your hats!) 4,391,500 foot pounds (that's right 4.3 MILLION ft lbs).Whoooeffingwaa!HunterKetchikan, AK
