It has been almost two months since I posted here, mostly because I've been unreasonably busy. Anyway, I just wanted to take a moment to point out that two rocket launches happened yesterday. Here is one, an Atlas V rocket taking a Navy satellite into space:
And another, more edited video of the launch process for this same rocket:
In addition a Soyuz rocket was launched from Baikonur Cosmodrome (near Russia) carrying three people (two cosmonauts, one astronaut) toward the international space station.
Let me repeat that:
RIGHT NOW THERE ARE THREE PEOPLE TRAVELING THROUGH SPACE TOWARD THE INTERNATIONAL SPACE STATION. THIS IS SUPER AWESOME.
When they arrive there will be 9 people aboard the International Space Station which just 1.5 months ago only had 3 people in it. Here's a video of yesterday's launch:
In conclusion: space travel is super awesome and it's really disappointing that people don't make a bigger deal over it.
