This is my tumblr. There are many like it, but this one is mine.
(Just a heads up for anyone who I follow: I have a habit of going through every page of someone's tumblr if I start following them, looking for things that amuse/interest me. I'm starting to realize that this might seem a bit creepy, so I apologize in advance.)
And it was pretty fucking awesome.
I think my favorite bit in the talk was when he started talking about what he calls “Apollo Necrophilia”
because with pretty much every other technological field, we look at the first version of something and can’t believe that it used to be like that. Computers, cell phones, etc. We all find the first versions of those things kind of quaint and silly, at best.
But with the Saturn V? We practically worship the thing. And we still haven’t made anything better. Because we’re too busy obsessing over how good everything was back then, when it comes to space exploration.
