It's mankind at its best. Godspeed.
Always warm my heart. Yeah, the space programme is using resources that could be put to better use elsewhere but I always find myself watching footage of a launch smiling and saying to myself, "Nice one, lads."
Perhaps it's a manifestation of repressed homosexuality. Oh well.
the space programme have been put into use across many many varied fields.
I'd also like to chase a tornado.
Those two exact things. Must be SUCH an adrenaline rush. My other half's seen the Cape Whatsitcalled place where they launch, and the nearest viewing platform is quite some distance away (obviously), but apparently the noise is fantastic (but shame about the crocodiles). It all looks like some awe-inspiring stuff.
