I saw it a few months ago, a magical film that took me back to a time full of hope when the West reigned supreme. New frontiers were being conquered and anything seemed possible, including the threat of nuclear annihilation, but you only thought about that during the small hours of the night.

So true and so sad to see what it has become now.  Wheres my bloody moonbase and hover car?  >sad

Re: NASA Ivy

Cape Canaveral became Cape Kennedy,

Then they switched it back to Cape Canaveral again.

What was the story behind that?  It is a very big snub whatever the reasoning .

I'm feeling so inspired by it I'm about to go out in grey Sta-prest, mock turtleneck, MA1 green flight jacket, AO original pilot sunglasses and Clarks DB's!  wink

Couple some of that inspiration with some Astrud Gilberto Canta in Italiano Portami con te (Fly me to the moon)

Re: NASA Ivy

I was at the Johnson Space Center in Houston two weeks back, and what struck me was how mundane and humdrum the Houston misson control building are. It looks just like a large office park anywhere in the world. In saying that, the Saturn V rocket was worth seeing up close. But there lacked space age glamour, which is probably right as you go to the moon with the hard sciences.

Onto Mars..

The personnel within the building appear equally as mundane these days. I watched the Curiosity probe landing on Mars the other week. Watching all those techno-buffs at JPL Mission Control - cheering, whooping, and hugging each other after the probe landed safely.

What struck me even more than the highly successful historical event that was unfolding, was how boring they all dressed these days compared to those cool images from the '60s moon landings.

Huge advances have been made in the world of space science. It's just such a shame that the sartorial side of things are so disappointing..

There was a particularly rancid looking one, like an old LSD hippy drop-out head with long Cat Weazel hair and I noticed no one was that keen on giving him a cuddle.

There was also plenty of women and no one was smoking cigars as Curiosity touched down.

We use to send men to the moon and they would race around in luna formula one buggies, now we send Meccano cars to Mars and after three weeks the car starts to move a couple of feet. Such an era of exploration requires a different breed, more of a latte sipping vegan type than the greatest system engineers and test pilots the world had ever known.

Here you go, the nerve tingling excitement:

NASA Curiosity rover completes Mars test drive
Rover expected to move forward about 10 feet, turn right, then back up and park, as part of a health checkup on planet.
