Out of the Blue

It was 14 years ago today that MrsBlue and I tied the knot, and entered into the institution of marriage. We have dinner plans to celebrate our anniversary, so I'll probably wrap things up here a little early to accommodate that.

That film of Apollo 11's take-off is incredible. Great find!

i totally agree. i love watching those footage. wonder why nasa has not released more of these on their tv channel or website.

on a side note. the narrator did not mention a little known fact about the wall of water that rushes down the hole underneath the launch pad. it is not meant to cool down stuff. it is used as a sound insulation. nasa still uses the same technique on space shuttle launch.
