Space BS5!

Today I went into London on the train; this is the last part before
Paddington.

Before I went for the train I had an early start and got a load of
work done ( in faaaaaantastic company x).

I also took a look at live Nasa TV and the Space Shuttle launch at
9.15. That was a right source of spod based fact action!

Within three minutes of launch the Space Shuttle was going 5000mph
and was already 52 miles beyond the launch site. At that rate of
knots, over the 13 seconds of this mundane train vid, the Space
Shuttle covered 17.92 miles!

Top spoddery!

Also met a very nice woman on the tube who asked me if I'd let her
know the changes needed for Kings Cross, which was my journey. This I
did happily and chattily, and that never happens in the saaaaaarf east!

I think its amazing that it can be moving so fas so soon. When you watch it launch it seems like it's hardly moving.
