Coolest trip ever

Post by S7 mrmiller on Thu May 24, 2012 4:58 pm

How the he11 do these things land where they do? The whole trip is amazing, but I can't believe they don't land 1000 miles apart.

Because someone smarter than you or me figured all that sh1t out long before launching. It is quite amazing. Great video.

That entire video is amazing to me. I was always "that kid" that loved math, science, and space exploration. I'm in total awe before, during, and after they blow away. The fact that it's going 3,000 Mph is only half of it.

I lived in South Florida and have seen these NASA launches with my own eyes (sad that my kids didn't and now won't). Unfortunately I saw the shuttle Challenger explode in '86 in person too and will never be able to forget that.

Can't pull the video up at work but I'm assuming it's about SpaceX?

Been keeping up on it for a while, was disappointed the live stream didn't work out.

That's a pretty cool video. I liked the part where you could follow the contrail back down to Florida.

No. It was a NASA shuttle launch. The video was a camera attached to the booster rockets. "Ride the booster, up and down in 400 seconds.". It was bad ass.

Anything space is awesome. Was fortunate enough to have the Army nominate me to NASA's Astronaut program 5 times but NASA rejected me every time - learned that in spite of how tough the process is, you still can't figure out what NASA really wants. Guess I didn't have the right stuff, but I never lost my dream to get into space someday.
