Can we send Captain Kirk to the sun instead? Why should I send my name, I'm already hot?
Here's an update
Chinese space lab Tiangong-1 to fall to Earth within days - CNN
Looks like a humdinger to me
That's a pretty cool video.
It goes on forever, but still pretty cool.
I really like when the nerds would clap for each event that went as planned.
I was watching it live, like 10 mins before launch, when I posted it. I guess now that it's over that's the entire build up and blast off.
I read some stuff about the launch and it gets even cooler. Musk was trying to catch the nose cone once it fell back down to earth with a boat that was hauling a giant net. The cone's parachute tangled and the thing smashed into the ocean so it wasn't successful but just the idea is really sweet. It will be awesome to see when they finally do it right. Like how it took a bunch of times (and cool explosions) before they were able to land the rockets.
SpaceX aced its launch, but the $6 million nose cone crashed
China's out-of-control Tiangong-1 space lab could hit Earth on Sunday night
That's cool. I'm sure there's a good joke in there somewhere, but I can't think of one now.
37 years is a long time to go without using your equipment
At least Voyager saw Uranus, but unfortunately didn't space probe it.

And I'm still a little sore.
Now that's clever.
