Space is the place, you guys. NEVER FORGET THAT.
Let me know when the Doctor shows up.
What happened to all the chopsticks?! I was just working out a fantastic* joke involving a Chet Haze/Tom Hanks In Big/Old Lady With Chopsticks connection!
oh my what happened to Kelly’s chopstick post??? did i hallucinate that? anyone?
I will! Katydid, I expect you to represent for VG. Is it too late to sneak Topher Grace aboard?
Also, space is rad. And Quasars are double rad. It’s just so fun to say.
I am so hot right now in this suit!
On the NASA channel, they did a “t-minus” countdown to five minutes.
OMG – They’re lifting the cap on the big orange thing. I am so nervous!
Listening to this while watching the countdown, trying not to cry at my desk,
I have a feeling NASA will be back, and will probably end up making an album with Kanye West.
did anyone else just shit their pants when they said “we have a failure” at 31 seconds?
…did they just do a countdown for the countdown?
Sure, they’re going into space or whatever, but I’ve been in a blimp! Your move, astronauts.
I am totally going to be late for work for watching this.
If anyone gets on my case about it, I will politely inform them that being a check-out girl at a shoddily run, overpriced grocery store simply cannot compete with outer fucking space.
That shit is terrifying.
“Go for the plus-x, go for the pitch.”
I wish I had a job where I heard stuff like that.
I can’t explain how sad this makes me. I am torn between my skepticism of Carl Saganian progress and my skepticism of peak oil and Malthusian collapse. My greatest regret about not being immortal is that I will never live see if we make it to the stars. When we had a space program, I could put that worry aside, but now I feel like I need to write science fiction and inspire a generation of children all over again, all by myself, and I am made even sadder because I’m not capable of doing that.
I liked it better when Billy Crystal was hosting these.
Holy Moly! That launch was way stressful. Guys, i can’t believe it launched. The weather was so unbelievably iffy with changing reports every ten minutes.Then the 31 second stop, Wow! My stomach is still in my throat.
I am proud that we have a space program capable of such incredible things. *raises her glass* Here’s to even more to come. To the MOON!*
*or an asteroid, or a deep space habitat, or mars….
