Great video and unlike the stuff in the theaters, it's real life.

I think I will also post a link under the Space: The Final Frontier topic.

An awesome engineering feat to accomplish, no terror unless you are on board and hoping it actually works. Machines have no emotions.

Pilots know the concept well, hours upon hours of boredom with a few minutes of sheer terror.
