Re: Space Nerds

Not but an hour ago Youtube recommended that to me so I watched it and my gosh... I knew the re-entry was crazy but not that crazy.  Some of the stats are totally nuts—the descent rate compared to an airliner...  seems they weren't kidding calling it 'the flying brick'.

I caught one of the shuttles landing on a 24 hour news channel many years ago, fascinating to watch, and I'll give this a go!

Re: Space Nerds

You know, I think I might wanna take another swing at making a DIY Saturn V. I made a giant one for the Holy Shit We Landed On The Fucking Moon party years ago, which still lives under my bed because it's so big it feels impossible to throw away, but it's nothin' fancy, and a really detailed four-foot Saturn V sounds awesome.

EDIT: Here's the one from the party. Considerably taller than the average guy, but not very detailed. There's also a small cocktail umbrella on the top tower, which is historically inaccurate.

Re: Space Nerds

Seeing your render of the Hyacinth design made me want to build a model of it. So.....I understand your impulse.
