I thought I did. Woke me up out of a dead sleep. Turns out I just fell out of bed.

Does anybody know what the fire was coming out of the top of the shuttle on the video?

You know all of this was done with CGI, right?

Every time I see some TV program where people are still saying that the moon landings were fake, I just want to smack them. We can launch a shuttle into space, deploy and repair satellites, then glide the shuttle back to earth and land on an air strip with pin point accuracy. But there is no way we could have landed on the moon.
