So a man rode in a balloon all the way to space...  

NGL, I cried like three separate times while watching all this.

Woot! I'm glad I was able to watch it live! I didn't even know about this until I watched it. XD Yes, I've been under a rock...

I know, I started watching when he was 70,000 feet up, and I'm so, so glad I had the opportunity to watch it live. It would not have been the same watching it later on YouTube, not at all.

Haha I thought about Star Trek's space jump, too. They made it look much easier.

Yeah, there was some naysaying here and there, but the many, many practical applications of what they learned doing this are astounding.

That is awesome indeed. Somehow I hadn't even heard of this before!

I remember reading about it a few weeks ago, but for some reason how awesome it was didn't really occur to me till I was watching yesterday. And then I was just verklempt the whole time. It was amazing.

My mum said the same! And I was like 'Duh mum I'm in the car!' 'Can't you watch on your laptop?' 'Mum I'm in the car where would I get a stable internet connection???' xD
