Spacevidcast STS-135 Trailer

While I might not agree with him on which is the best orbiter, I have to give a lot of credit to Benjamin Higginbotham, Executive Producer of Spacevidcast for his video production skills. This trailer for Spacevidcast’s coverage of the launch is just amazing…

For the record, Discovery, the fleet leader, is the best orbiter. Don’t believe anything else you hear.

Space Related Birth Announcements

So I’m trying to come up with something space related that we could tweak into a birth announcement for our daughter. What comes to mind first is @saroy’s pumpkin pie recipe in the style of a Rendezvous timeline, but I don’t know what would be appropriate. I’d love something like a MCC Checklist or timeline, but I’m open to anything else as well. I don’t know if this will work, but am hoping that my spacetweeps will be able to help!

The standard fields that would need to be included are:

  • Name
  • Date & Time
  • Weight
  • Height
  • Location

Obviously, these fields can (and should) be renamed to something more spacey (i.e. Date and time would be launch date, launch time), but I don’t know the way to go. Any help you can provide would be greatly appreciated. Comment here or ping me on Twitter if you have ideas.
