Re: Much better view here

Whilst I feel the same as you I think we are in the minority. In the Apollo days (well up to Apollo 14) everyone watched. I know I was riveted to the TV when a mission was on and I don't think I was that much more of a geek then. Now people want and get a new thrill every day (cute kittens on the internet) so this doesn't captivate most people that much.

The pictures this time round are so much better, but what they don't convey is the size of that booster standing on the deck. It was only when I showed my daughter a picture of a person standing beside a 50 meter tall recovered booster that she got the sense of scale and said wow.
