Re: anibanerjee,

Yes, this is also fascinating: 104 satellites over a period of 18 minutes from a single rocket launch. I went back and found some footage of that launch. It is an impressive accomplishment!

Starward steps are invariably exciting and grand to watch, the lift-off, touch-down. India, the other day, made a record launching 110 satellites in just a matter of hours, or minutes, I forgot. But it was a world record.

Nice post and for me that was the Wow moment too and it was all very understated.

Hidden Figures made all of us aware to what exactly goes into a launch instead of the training of the astronauts

Re: CCT,

Or despite... I don't know what Von Braun's dreams were, but maybe from the beginning he saw rockets as the way to reach into space even though his bosses in Germany may have only been looking for weapons.

Yes remarkable and all may have been inspired more rapidly by weapons of war.
