Radioisotope Thermoelectric Generator. Generates electricity from the heat given off by radioactive decay of isotopes (typically plutonium 238). Useful for "relatively" long spacecraft missions to deep space where solar arrays are not efficient. And definitely agree, the last few what-ifs ...

Re: What-If 0039: "Hockey Puck"

Love this what-if. Currently using one of the aforementioned hypervelocity light gas guns to test some data cables for the ISS. And I can verify that a hockey puck would definitely not fit in any of the guns though haha.

She was just at the water a couple of frames ago, so I sincerely doubt that is "the river". Randall has certainly stirred the pot though.

I love that even over 300 frames later people are still analyzing each one in depth. This is my favorite forum thread ever, despite the amount of my life it has consumed.
