SpaceX is Go!

A friend, thinking this space cadet, a veteran follower of the Apollo moonshots, might be interested, sent me a link to the above video.

I was not expecting such quality. The mash-up makers got it right: transposing the SpaceX rocket program to the exciting opening and end titles of the old Thunderbirds television series. A series I loved as a child. (I saw 1968's Thunderbird 6 on the big screen.)

Mention must be made of Barry Gray's thunderously brilliant theme music. A theme! A melody! Can you believe it? (Hans Zimmer need not apply.)

I dig the 'this episode' sequence; a scherzo of rocket failures.

Thanks for thinking about me, Jon!
