S'COOL Frequently Asked Questions
It takes several years to build and test a satellite, and the instruments that it will carry, and to make sure that they will work correctly together. Many times there are small problems that delay the launching for many months if not years. Remember, scientists only get one shot at getting the satellite and its instruments to work correctly, otherwise it will be a waste of a lot of money if something goes wrong once the satellite is already in orbit.
Ramp Plans Dot Org: Frequently Asked Questions
it took us about a week. With two different people putting in about 4-5 hours a day. So about 40 - 70 man hours. we used 1/2" CDX (just rough. ) plywood for the first two layers, and Masonite for the last layer. see the question about how to bend the wood, for more info. I have a feeling that the transitions would be too tight for BMX, and the Decks are definitely short, ( 2' 4" )
The keel for Titanic was laid in March 1909, and her hull was launched May, 1911. She was then towed to a fitting out basin where her interiors were installed. She was completed in Feb 1912. So it basically took 3 years to build the Titanic.
Frankly, we don't know and there's really no way to know! We start building new stuff after each show and reuse built items all the time. Some of us build all the time and some of us don't build for weeks.
Castle FAQ - Frequently Asked Questions
There were many factors that determined the time it took to build a castle. Some bigger castles took up to 20 years to complete (such as The Tower of London). At an average of 7-12 years, building castles was a very difficult task. Even when finished, many kings and nobles would still improve a castle by strengthening the walls and towers. Timber castles were very effective against spears and arrows. Nevertheless, wooden castles were very weak against fire.

Work on building CAPS commenced in July 2001 and CAPS went live on 11th December 2002, period of about 18 months.
The polar orbiting satellites (the ones that fly overhead) are the NOAA and DMSP satellites. The DMSP satellite is run by the Air Force who makes the data available to researchers. I use both to track and observe the icebergs. Both sets of satellites are U.S. owned and operated. GOES (US), METEOSAT (Europe), and GMS (Japan) are the geostationary satellites. They are great for observing the full disk of the Earth, but not the best near the poles.
Construction was started on January 26, , and was completed on March 31, 1889, so it took two years, two months, and five days. Building the foundations required just over five months.
Frequently Asked Questions
Initial plans were discussed in 1919. Mr. Hearst left San Simeon in 1947, and construction ceased that year, concluding a 28-year building span.
Magellan Professional GPS
When the ProMark2 is used for the first time it doesn't have any information about where the satellites are. About 15 minutes of tracking at least one satellite allows the unit to acquire a satellite almanac which contains the rough location of each satellite. After an almanac is acquired, tracking should occur within seconds of turning the unit on. Setting a user position can also help the receiver track faster the first time out.
Noah's Ark Search - Mount Ararat
Genesis 6:15 And this [is the fashion] which thou shalt make it [of]: The length of the ark [shall be] three hundred cubits, the breadth of it fifty cubits, and the height of it thirty cubits. 16 A window shalt thou make to the ark, and in a cubit shalt thou finish it above; and the door of the ark shalt thou set in the side thereof; [with] lower, second, and third [stories] shalt thou make it.
Frequently Asked House Plans Questions
No - When a plan set is ordered, the license issued bears the name of the person that ordered the plan and the license is not transferable for any reason. It means that the plans are NOT stamped by an certified engineer. Some areas of the country require that the plans be stamped by a local engineer to obtain a building permit.

It all depends on how you define "work". Judge for yourself by looking at my Build History. Obviously I wasn't working on it continuously, but I did spend considerable amounts of time and energy for almost four years.

It took about 3½ weeks. They started felling trees on December 9 and had it finished enough to move into on Christmas Day 1805. The pickets and gates completed the fort on New Years Day.
