    To be honest, I thought I'd watch 30 seconds of this and move on to something else. Needless to say, I watched the whole thing. I missed my calling as an astronaut.

    That was very cool. What gets me is that we haven't seen anything like that prior to the END of the shuttle missions:( Another thing we saw very little of and when we did see it it was very late in the mission cycle was video taken from inside the shuttle during re-entry.

    Yes it is a shame more of this is not available. But damn that is cool, leaving the atmosphere, then the re-entry. The Shuttle reached over 2400 mph before seperation, and the cells after seperation maintain that speed until it re-entered into our atmosphere. The sounds the cells made and the debris field while floating was way cool too.

    Too bad we have been strangling our space program to death for the last 30 years.

    That was cool for sure.
    Went to the Johnson Space Flight center 2 years ago and took the tour to see the absolute monstrous Saturn V rocket which they have displayed laying horizontal.
    It's not a model but the real deal. Just amazing stuff.

    That's pretty awesome, but slightly nauseating IMO (with all the spinning about and stuff starts dropping off). The crash into the water was my favorite part.

    If anyone else was wondering - I clocked 0-60 at about 6 seconds.
