    Not bad. Enjoyed it very much. Did you by any chance read my article at SpaceDaily titled The Case For Orion? Noticed similar phrases. Not bothered. Just curious. Especially liked the comparison to a gatling gun. I called it an atomic bomb machine gun. If anything I’m flattered if my old article was one of your sources.

    Hi Wayne – here at the Nest, when it comes to video content, we curate content that we come across on Youtube that might be of interest to our readers. We didn’t actually produce this piece.

    Simon has a fairly well-known youtube channel, and I’m sure he’d be happy to answer your questions about sources.
