  • Jonathan McDowell's Spelling Flame Page
    Where did this one come from I see it everywhere nowadays DISCRETE and DISCREET Integers are discrete They are rarely discreet LOSE and LOOSE I lose track of how frequently this one is loosed upon the world Remember that lose one o means to misplace Loose two o means to deliberately let something go free and is much more rarely used The headline Project May Loose sic US Involvement almost certainly meant to say May Lose THE GREENGROCERS APOSTROPHE As I walk down the street I see signs for colliflower s 1 50 lb and in the furniture store window cheap mattress s No genitive is meant here they mean cauliflowers and mattresses a simple plural ITS and IT S The above leads naturally to the distinction between ITS and IT S It s very simple to remember that the contraction of it is needs its apostrophe while the possessive word its doesn t have one SUPERSEDE not SUPERCEDE People often mistakenly think this verb is related to CONCEDE and PRECEDE and RECEDE which derive from Latin CEDERE to yield No it comes from the unrelated SEDERE to sit and so is spelt with an S E G vs I E Another common mistake is to use i e where you really mean e g If you re giving an example e g The software package has been improved in several respects e g the documentation is now in English then use e g If you re telling the whole story i e you want to say exactly the same thing over but in different words then use i e AFFECT versus EFFECT If you effect something you make it happen entirely not just affect it a bit COMPLEMENTARY not COMPLIMENTARY I would like to compliment those writers who understand

    vehicle s size and power However I have not always done a serious search to get the best available values and you should not prefer the figures given here to those in other sources Indeed the reader should be warned that all values are likely to have 10 percent errors and those indicated with a question mark have at least 20 percent errors and often are merely ROM or WAG estimates Note that apogees in particular are often estimates The LTCite citations apply only to the launch times secondary citations are given for interest I have not provided a detailed citation trail for the values in other columns of the tables You have been warned I acknowledge the help of Joe King and Pat Ross at NSSDC who provided access to the old World Data Center Rockets and Satellites launch database and Joel Powell Jean Jacques Serra Vladimir Agapov Phillip Clark Asif Siddiqi Peter Hunter Jacques Tiziou and the late Geoff Perry for sharing data over the many years it took to assemble this information Mark Cleary at Patrick AFB Roger Launius at NASA HQ Elaine Liston at the KSC archives and Jeff Geiger at Vandenberg were among those who provided useful data Mark Wade has also caught a number of inconsistencies in the designation system which I ve fixed and Doug Burke found numerous formatting errors Above all kudos to Carl Rigg who once again spent several months painstakingly comparing my data with his own extensive and independently constructed lists and caught a large number of typos and errors Thanks to Carl I believe that this database is now as reliable a source for launch times launch sites and vehicle types as any currently in existence In the 2014 edition I must also thank Ulrich Brocks who has scoured
