So, remember that launch announcement I reblogged just a few days ago? The first successful private industry space launch ever?
Well, half by accident, I actually ended up at the Kennedy Space Center today, where I not only got to see (from a distance) the launchpad (#40 - it’s one of those blocky buildings that’s hovering in the distance) which SpaceX leased for their Dragon takeoff, but they were showing a live video feed during one of their presentations of the capsule being docked with the ISS, which occurred this morning.
Plenty more space-tech porn pics to come!
(Second funny thing - on a whim, we decided to watch MIB 3 tonight, and what’d you know, half the movie was about Cape Canaveral and the Apollo moon launch!)
GDI you lucky whore.
And hilariously, so was the opening twoparter of Season Six of Doctor Who last summer. Apparently the Apollo launch is a new Thing in recent SF.
