  • One day I will tell my Great Grandchildren about the space shuttle. And they will ask me what happened to it, and I will them that the Emperor had them moved to museums for a few years before destroying them all. Then they will ask how did The Emperor get to be The Emperor. I will tell them that before the death camps, and before the civil war, we lived in a free country called the United States of America. A land of peace and prosperity, that changed one day when 2 tall towers were destroyed an More..

      Bush approved an alternate plan to mine the moon for a new energy source. We were already working on the boosters to go back to the moon - scrap now. And we must now go to Mars? Bush had a replacement for the Shuttle. Obama created a large gap.

      As for Bush in a class room, how was he supposed to react? He was probably shocked.

      I don't care for Bush (immigration, TARP, drugs, ...) but the treatment of him by the pop-culture and media were simply disgusting.

      X

      Many astronauts died during the cold war period as well!!

      This old Soyuz workhorse is reliable, cheap and efficiƫnt now. Can't say that of Apollo and Space Shuttle projects. U.S. Taxpayers money gone up in smoke literally!!

    • @SlipperyWhenWet sure.... Soyuz space craft is the safest space vehicle out there with over 99.5% success. It has a great safety technology for all cosmonauts and astronauts who travel inside. In case of a failure, even at start, top part of a rocket where the crew is can be ejected from the rest of the rocket in a split second with 3rd engine booster and travel a mile up with 8Gs and deploy a huge parachute for landing.
      What did we do to our space program and shuttle? Put it in museum and go t More..

    • @LandOfTheFucked Maybe someday we discover other life forms. Maybe someday we discover all DNA is derived from slime on a comet that hit the Earth 4.5 billion years ago, and maybe the slime was sent by our ancestors from another planet in another star system, or maybe even another galaxy.

      And I suppose that since we don't know, it is possible that some fucking douchebag aliens are laughing their asses off at us, but honestly, I totally don't think it is like that. It appears uniquely human t More..

  • The great thing about this footage is it shows how unbelievably amazing rockets that size are, to even work at all, without blowing up, and getting all the way to orbit, in less than 10 minutes from the launchpad. With live dudes on the inside, no less. If I didn't know better, I would be sure this was impossible, no way to get that much force together to launch someone into space like that, no way, I think I would argue.

    Expert viewers in crowd were disappointing in what they sounded like ta More..

    • @CatEatDog Whats even more amazing is the Saturn V. Spacecraft films makes a good documentary set about it.

    • @HauntyMoto The Saturn V is like a sacred thing to me. There is one on display near where I live. I need to drive down and check it out.

      Huntsville? A family friend grew up around there while they were testing engines. The ground rumbled all the time. The museum there is well worth any admission, even if just to see the Saturn V.

    • @EdselFord Houston, thx for asking. One of my goals is to see the museum in Huntsville. My perception is that is where the purest rocket engineering took place.
