STS133 Ascent Highlight Video

This is really nice. They picked some of the best stuff I've seen in the last week and edited it into one really nice video with enough different kind of music to annoy and touch everybody. I love French horns.

Also my friend Chris Warnock the parachutist tracked down an actual person who works on those parachutes for the SRBs, Dave Hillebrandt. I'm hoping to get an explanation for how they do the reefing to make them open in three stages like that. I think that's totally cool.

  1. Hi there,

    a friend of mine just sent me your blog post "Ahhlone" and told me "You should seek her out! I think you'd get along." So now I have proceeded to read your blog all the way back to the beginning of the year and have thoroughly enjoyed it.

    I live in Austin too. I have for 2 years. I tend to be anti-social too. But, if you are ever looking to meet new people, maybe we can be anti-social together.

    And hopefully this isn't the most awkward thing I have ever written.

    My blog is: I whine a lotabout my life, but sometimes I say something thoughtful.

    Have a great day!
