The brilliant HBO miniseries From the Earth to the Moon has been remastered and is released on Blu-Ray on 15th July.
Worth buying because it really is excellent.

Al Reinert’s classic documentary film For All Mankind is on BBC4 next Sunday night.
It really is the definitive film about the Apollo missions. Beautiful viewing, fantastic soundtrack.

Dont know if this has been posted before, but its well worth a watch if you haven't seen it.



Not the best quality I am afraid, and BBC catchup has axed it, but if you look it might be on tinternet elsewhere. The DVD is still available.

"SpaceX CEO Elon Musk has posted a unique, uninterrupted view of Falcon 9’s latest landing, completed by booster B1056 on July 25th after successfully launching Cargo Dragon on its 18th mission (CRS-18) to the International Space Station (ISS).

Combining four separate views, the video also happens to feature an extremely rare instance of audio clearly recorded from a microphone on Falcon 9 itself, capturing the roar and violence of engine ignition and putting sound to the booster’s hypersonic dive through Earth’s thickening atmosphere."
Short but dramatical!

I find that totally amazing, the fact that they can land rockets like that.

Incredible engineering/wizardy

I guess you can do almost anything if you put your mind to it. When I say mind, I mean lots of money.

Actually we knew in the 60's they'd be landing rockets backwards like this. They used to do it all the time on Dan Dare and Thunderbirds. We've had to wait all this time for Musk to catch up with Jeff Tracy. Musk hasn't got the eyebrows for it.
