I’m having a day flailing copiously over space-sass (all prompted by this video from Chris Hadfield). Then I realised that I’d never posted this video. Seriously, there need to be more songs with lines like “throw ‘em up for manned space flight”…!
Also, sticking in what is possibly the best comment in the history of youtube, because just occasionally comments are worth reading:
I remember the first time I saw this, I thought to myself “wow, this is an old meme. Did NASA just get out-nerded?”
Then I remembered that when Gangnam Style came out, they were still busy trying to land a car on Mars. Using a rocket-suspended skycrane. That got there by being strapped to the top of an explosion.
I am sorry NASA, I should never have questioned you. I am unworthy.
Science rocks, people.
