    I like the designs on your T-shirts.
    Am I the only one who dances to the calendar music? Edit: Apparently not…

    Did anyone else (other than me) get your Georgia O’Keefe joke?

      LOL Rick!! I’m guessing not… I just *HAD* to throw it in there!!
      I’m terrible, I know. Ben was just about kicking me under the desk that night.

    You’re right. It’s time to get beyond arguments about Ares vs Direct and go on to going back to the moon. Here’s a link to ULA’s plan for going back to the moon using only current EELVs. No super-big Ares V or Direct launcher needed!

      Oh, forgot to mention, ULA specifies that their system could deliver an extra 10 metric tons of payload to the lunar surface than with a mission using Ares V and for much less cost.

    Ben and Cariann, you’ve got to see this!

    Buzz Aldrin has made a rap video to commerate Apollo 11. Go here:

    I just saw that video. You have to see it to believe it.

    Do you guys subscribe to Smithsonian Magazine? Because I just got the July issue, and there’s a crowd shot of the Apollo 11 launch with a couple that looks a lot like you guys. (Seriously!)

    Should Spaceport for VIRGIN galactic look like female genitalia? Esspecially when you can clearly see poeple entering and exiting?
    I was crying I was laughing so hard.

      Wow you really should watch less porn an more spacevidcast! :p

      I think it looks like a giant alien spaceship sitting on its “cornfield-ring”-like landing pad 🙂

        I agree. It doesn’t look dirty at all. It looks like a spaceport.

    Definitely not hard to take the innocent thing and have it appear dirty. Do you REALLY think it was an oversight from Virgin? Heh.
