The Universe


Recommended Posts

This geezer has excellent coverage. Started out streaming from his laptop but now has a fully kitted out broadcast van and must be pouring hundreds of thousands of dollars of equipment at every launch. Also gets stung from time to time with fake names when reading out his comments, which is wonderful banter. Ice Wallow Come being a recent example.

Impressive - but looks like something Victorian out of a Jules Verne story - made out of iron and riveted together. 

The Forth Rail Bridge is still standing after 130 years. The Forth Road Bridge needed closing after 50.

I'll take Victorian iron and rivets technology in space anytime

Imagine being in the crew room about an hour before launch (not sure), and your boss says "No biggy, but we've got a bit of a hydrogen leak going on below that thing, probably just a few nuts need tightening, are you up for it?".

American Astronaut: "That's no problem, sir" *Salutes Flag*

UK Astronaut: "I've got a bit of a gas leak going on below myself and my nuts have tightened too"

IIRC Neil Armstrong quote

"I am sitting on top of the biggest rocket in the world built by the contractor who put in the lowest bid."
