Thanks Damian.


 


I enjoyed the Last Shuttle program last night, that had some interesting access to crew and other personnel. Well worth a watch on playback or iplayer.

Yeah I caught that too Martyn, excellent watch. It was very eery to see the prep building all empty. I think It's easy to forget how much the space shuttle program has done for space exploration...truly amazing.

I would love to have gone to a launch...anyone off here been?

Closest I've been is inside the VAB as they were decommissioning Endevour. It is a truely awe inspiring building that photographs nor film footage can convey.

I am so jealous of you right now Mike...you could have told me you were going :)

What an experience that must have been.

It was an incredible and humbling experience, and one that re-kindled my childhood interest in the night sky. It was a month later that I bought my first scope.

It was good, i enjoyed it. I'd have liked a bit more depth about some of the stuff, like the processing of human waste, and the response to exercise and testosterone, but as they say most of this stuff is still in early stages of development.

I wonder if there will be a quantum leap forwards in space travel before we send anyone to mars to reduce the travelling tine?

I don't know about all that, I want to see the rocket, it will be a monster. SIX motor's, they will be larger and they are upgrading the Saturn V test rig to accommodate it, I would love to see that one go off.


 


There must be something in the offing if they have already made a section of the fuel tank, they wouldn't waste money just making a segment just to see how it turned out.
