To the Open Spaces

It's kind of one of those days - not much to go on about.

But 710 showed me this video the other day and I was just fascinated by it. I love space travel. I'd totally do it if it didn't require physics and math. That, and I'm still not 100% sure how one "eliminates" in zero gravity.

And I'd just assume not to really find out.

While I am loving Elon Musk's Space X adventures, I was mega impressed by Jeff Bezos' Blue Origin launch and landing.

The clean burn on take-off is neat. I like watching the speed of acceleration and deceleration. How it gets down to single and low double digits for the landing.

I know technology changes in a heartbeat, but still find it difficult that an outside company - two in fact - could do what NASA couldn't or wouldn't do.

Yes, the video is like 12 minutes long......but it's kind of fascinating.

I'm with you on that "elimination" thang.
