Looking For A Great Halloween Costume? Cowboy Costume Is Much Fun!

Probably, everyone of us remembers that being children when we were asked by grown-ups what profession we would like to have in future most of us named quite fantastic or extremely rare professions. And certainly, our dreams have changed for a great number of times. We wanted to be so many different professions, characters from fairy-tales and things. Some children feel real confusion making up their minds. One day, a boy wants to be Conan the Barbarian, the next day he dreams to be a cowboy, the third - a ninja, and quite often even Crocodile Dundee.

Now, being adults, it's very difficult for us to understand what cause us think that we want to be so many characters. But look at your own grown-up dreams now. What are they? Much money, a new house, a successful business or even a world-wide popularity? Aren't these dreams somewhat similar to those we had in childhood? In childhood, kids have somewhat different way of thinking based on what they have seen and experienced.

Commercial space transportation technology has remained largely unchanged over the years, with some refinement. But pressure to reduce cost and prices while developing more complex systems within shrinking schedules, and legislative changes have led to compromises in quality. The inevitable result is increased failure, as evidenced by the recent rash of mishaps involving commercial, civil government and military missions. On show #702C ("Quality in Space"), World Business Review goes on-on-one with the commercial launch services leader, which is setting new quality standards while meeting the industry's requirement for tight-fistedness.

Arianspace Inc., the commercial launch services leader, maintains its position in the industry because of its steadfast commitment to reliability. Arianspace recently set a new standard for reliability, achieving a milestone with its 50th consecutive successful Ariane 4 launch. Arianspace has already eclipsed that achievement with the December 10, 1999 commercial launch of Ariane 5. This marks a profound increase in lift capability, and is the first operational heavy-lift launch vehicle of the next generation.
