Great page Jeff (and other contributors). My only comment is that it might be nice to see the pictures uploaded onto the VOC Wiki site and placed inline with the article, rather than having the external links to the physics server. The wiki software will create thumbnails, etc. for you if that's what you want. The Brew Hut and Navigation pages have some nice examples of different ways that pictures can be linked into an article. Scott Nelson 12:44, 14 December 2006 (MST)

Good idea, that way if Jeff ever graduates and his physics account dies, the wiki will still have the pics. Scott Webster 13:01, 14 December 2006 (MST)

Double rapping

So, the idea with two people rapping at the same time, one on each strand, is that there is enough friction at the top that the heavy person doesn't pull the light person up? Is this "safe"? I'm guessing Jeff did it with Kaja, and he wasn't pulled up, so it's probably good. I guess you are trusting your lives to each other because if one person decides to disconnect at the bottom first then the other falls to their death. Scott Webster 16:01, 20 December 2006 (MST)

Piotr and I did a few pitches of double rapping when we cleaned. He is heavier than me, and had the pry-bar attached to him, and the rope didn't slip through at all unless we intentionally made it do so (by one person un-weighting the rope). Like anything we're doing when cleaning, this method requires good communication, but I don't think the risk is inherently that much greater. We trust our lives to each other when climbing all the time. -- Matthew 23:43, 12 June 2007 (PDT)

Well at least he didn't change it to Uranus. Scott Nelson

Europa's surface is an icy crust. Beneath that is a liquid ocean. Only once you go down a 100 km or so do you get to the rock. Not too dissimilar to the climb. Scott Webster 23:17, 5 March 2007 (PST)

Tidy up

I floated the contents box (which is rather huge) to the right. I think it works better. It would still be nice to have a few photos embedded in the page - especially if Jeff is showing this page to potential funders of the project. -- Matthew 13:46, 15 June 2007 (PDT)


It's possible people would feel better about donating if they could give money to the VOC, who could then give it to you if required. They might (perhaps incorrectly) think that the club is more responsible. Scott Webster 15:09, 22 June 2007 (PDT)
