    why do they have to suppress the sound with water ?

  3. U5K0 on February 14, 2010 at 4:58 am

    if they ddn’t, the vibration would shake the spacecraft apart

    i absolutely LOVE the spacenews opening. =)

    Personally i think it was a bigger milestone the russians did with Yuri Gagarin. Just my opinion… 😉

    no problem,

    if you ever want to know space stuff and don’t get an answer here, the 24/7 chat room on spacevidcast(dot)com usually has the answer

    Yuri Gagarin only flew up to the upper levels of the earths atmosphere barely reaching into space. The USA WALKED ON THE MOOOON!!! Are you sure you want to stand by your comment or are you just trying to be difficult for the sake of being difficult?

  10. hootyhaha on February 14, 2010 at 6:41 pm

    What Gagarin was important. But.. still. USA… Moon Walking… first ones. Of course now with the adnimistration knocking back the budget NASA employees told me that they would either have to get corporate sponsors, or start hitching a ride with RUSSIA. Ironic.

    Holy crap! At 13:43 there’s a friggin space ship FLYING THROUGH THE SUN!!

  12. starguy9 on February 14, 2010 at 10:44 pm

    because the sound waves from the rockets are so loud and concussive they have the ability to shatter, shred, and warp parts on the space ship. The water absorbs some of the concussion.

  13. mac8king on February 15, 2010 at 8:30 am

    I think that USA did a great job with the moon mission.. but its kinda sad that Yuri didnt get a place in the intro.. LONG LIVE USA AND RUSSIA 🙂

    thanks for making this magnificent show!

    😀 space balls

    YURI is still famous, even if he’s not mentioned in this particular video. Anybody who knows about Space Exploration knows about Yuri Gagarin. Even if they forget his name, we all remember the video of him in space. Very cool.

    @SgtSAWblade Hahaha, nice try. That is one of the planets in our solar system, probably Venus making a return trip. The solar wind distorts the light hitting the cameras and sensors on the SOHO and other satellites monitoring the sun. So the position of the objects moving in the background is questionable, researchers must ‘guess’ the actual position, indicating range of error with the drawn-in lines you see. 😛

  18. SgtSAWblade on April 7, 2010 at 6:50 pm

    @pkscolax Ah cool cheers for that. I learnt something new today 🙂 Do you mean those bursts of white lines and dots etc that appear?

  19. pkscolax on April 14, 2010 at 11:19 am

    @SgtSAWblade Yes. 🙂 Although space ships could hide very easily behind our sun, what we’re picking up on our scopes are much larger: planets.
