Yesterday SpaceX launched a Russian Cargo craft which plans to dock with the ISS within two days after launch. The Progress carried almost three tons of food, fuel and supplies for the Expedition 53 crew on the station. The spacecraft is scheduled to make a quick, two-orbit journey to the station.
Now, I’m no expert… but seriously, if anyone watches this video and still thinks it is real… wow, just wow.
But, for those of you that don’t feel the need to watch a 10 minute video of the most recent SpaceX launch, here are some quick little screen captured snippets from that video. It’s pretty much the most majestic thing I have ever seen.
Let’s totally disregard the fact that the live footage clearly shows the rocket only reaching an altitude of about 20 miles maximum before changing its trajectory from an upward assent to a horizontal then downward one before the feed changes to that pure gold CGI.
Wow… I am literally at a loss for words here. This has got to be the most realistic thing I have ever seen (of course only if it’s 1998 and you are playing a PlayStation One, of course).
How in the mess is anyone buying this junk? SpaceX needs to hire some of the guys that have done more recent work for things like the PS4.
I think it might be a good move… just saying.
