Shuttle launch

Here is footage of NASA’s Ares I-X test rocket taking off. I think sometimes we forget how amzing it is that we are able to launch a huge hunk of steel into orbit around our planet. This plus news that they are working on a space hotel for 2012 has me excited for the future.

Space Hotel


  1. Ah, it's nice to run into another video game blogger. My website is a combination of everything video game related and anime though. Anyway, Out of curiosity do you own any systems? And if so are you looking forward to any of the new games about to come out? Well, it's nice to see that there's blogger out there with the same interest, hope to keep in touch.

  2. The only thing I have a problem with a "Space Hotel" is the fact that even short term space travel, as in the lack of gravity has huge long term digenerative effects on the human body. Loss of cartliage and bone density. Also effects on the Cardio Vascular System. And in a age when most people already have problems with these things I can see how this would only exacerbate the problem. BUT! I would love to stay a night or two at it.
