James May Goes to the Moon

Filed under: Space,Telescope — jasony @ 9:51 pm

I’ve seen hundreds of hours of documentaries on the moon program. I’ve read dozens of books, built the models, and collected the mission patches. I can tell you the difference between a PLSS, an MMU, and TLI.

But I’ve never seen such a wonderful documentary as the one that Top Gear’s James May and the BBC put on. If you have an hour I would highly recommend that you take the time to watch it. James May and the BBC crew have the technical abilities perfectly married to well polished storytelling chops. I dare you to watch it with dry eyes. You won’t be disappointed.

Thanks to friend Josh for pointing it out.

Inspirational, and something I need right now. Thanks Katherine.

The real essence of writing is moving past fear and that success comes when you get to that place where you push past the demons and go ahead with what you ought to be doing.

Well, that’s a new one..I just spent 7 minutes or so on the phone (hearing a consistent beeping in the background) with a mom, trying to schedule her daughter for Music for little Mozarts, and halfway through the conversation she said “well, frankly, I’m in the middle of a colonoscopy right now and just don’t know what time to tell you that might work”…me: “Are you a doctor?” her “Yes, I’m a doctor, and our schedule is just crazy”…ummmmm….why don’t we talk about this later?

A certain neurologist friend of our will appreciate this.
