  4. A week or so ago, I made a comment about Dr. Neal DeGrasse-Tyson’s comment that only government could handle a project as big as the space program. Well, I found a site that lists ten companies that sent America to the moon. NASA may have been in charge, but without those companies (and all their subcontractors), the USSR probably would have put a man on the moon before us. Right now, companies like SpaceEx and Blue Origin are presently driving US efforts into space.

  5. That was quite amazing. Crew Dragon will remain docked for the next five days. Here’s hoping for a successful reentry and recovery of the capsule!

  6. I just finished watching that amazing video and turned on my music randomizer. First piece was “the Blue Danube.” Truth.

  7. Listening to the voices on the video: young. The faces: young. My face: old, hopeful and smiling. Conclusion: apparently, not everyone has been glued to a Playstation over the past couple of decades; somebody’s been hitting the books.

  8. So who is that sitting in the chair with the space suit on?
    What is that blue toy doing floating around in there too?

  9. ^ Good questions.
    The space suit houses an instrumented dummy named Ripley.
    The green ball is a fuzzy Earth globe toy to watch g-loading/unloading effects.
