Google is well on the way to ruling the world. This does not mean that they don't make mistakes. We'll start with their messenger, which I greatly appreciated, but they did not. Apparently I'm not the only one who thinks so.
Seriously, look at this shit. Doing a backflip at Mach 5 with the external tank still attached, NBD. Rumor has it that the scenario was possible in the sim with an intact shuttle, but in just about any case where you're doing an RTLS the shuttle most likely isn't intact (if it was you could just a transatlantic abort or something). There's also rumors that STS-1 was planned to be a test of the RTLS scenario, before John Young helpfully pointed out that was a retarded idea.
