    Mecanical engineers rule. Especially the wealthy ones.
    I have the small step on 16mm film and a Norelco recorder recording the TV picture. I watched Apollo 11 live, even bought a new color TV set for the occasion.

    Very careless of NASA losing the tapes. They also lost "the technology to go back to the moon" which was a bit more important...

    I watched the new-out Apollo 11 film a couple of days ago. Tip Top!

    It's a black hole gradually eating away at the plane we live on.
    Due to time and space warps it makes it our plane look like a circle and makes the oceans seem curved to the horizion.
    If you go near it it eats you and you can't come back to tell us about it so there is no record.
    We are all doomed !!!

    Don't forget the giant sea monsters. The world is just one big infinity pool.

    I would have to think the only ones who know what's on the bottom of the earth are those who have fallen off...but then what happens when you fall off, is there a way to get back on?

    Mobius strip. You land on the mobius strip.

    Thanks rons
    I won't miss it.

    Looks like space travel is getting funded in a big way, Richard Bransen received almost 1 billion from a hedge fund and now he's going public. 4 letter Ticker symbol has yet to be determined.

    As far as I can tell Project Egress to make a replica of Apollo capsule door + mechanisms farmed out to different MAKER shops / personalities. Project headed up by Adam Savage of Mythbuster fame and Smithsonian National Air and Space Museum and many others (have not combed through all documentation but these videos seem to be "organically" popping up for "Project Egress" [All part of Apollo 50th anniversary celebrations, the finished combined "Assemblage" will be unveiled at Mile-Stones gallery in DC NASM (I believe) and exhibited next to the original Apollo 11 capsule. ].

    The program I listened to mentioned something about the sponginess of the suit material. So the design work went to the padded bra department.
