Your Trip Is Short.....
« on: March 25, 2012, 01:43:09 AM »
I really like all the photos and video that come out of NASA. Figured a thread might catch some stuff I miss. This is a new video they recently upped and it is all MINDBLOWIN' and shit. Time lapse from the space station.

Fucking insane.

I love the shots of the city lights on earth from space. The one of the east coast is cool. You can make out Richmond, Norfolk/VA beach, Hampton, Fredericksburg and even Charlottesville. Very cool.
Just two whiskies, officer.

I'm not sure if I followed this thread correctly, but what guys are saying is that Dave Thomas sold crack in inner-city DC in the mid-80's, right?

I once saw this interview of the guy that NASA employed to color all of the shots from the telescopes that everyone sees.  Like from Hubble.  The actual images have no color and he choses colors to coordinate with the gases.  It was pretty interesting

I read about that process somewhere.

That's the guy that's helping redbull put the whole thing together. This jump is going to be about 18,000 feet higher than that dude's.
sure we tend to ramble, but that was a 3 page off topic tangent on crack and doses for breakfast?

Hey, I don't know anything. Please help.

Yeah, pretty sure this was mentioned on the paug before. But I was wondering when it was going to be.

That requires Richard Branson money. My method only requires ten bucks.
