I'm guessing that NASA lied, they probably had a 20% chance of survival.

I'm surprised their balls fit inside the cockpit.

Seriously, it takes big brass ones to do what they did.

@Hairy Jello
You can always go watch The Right Stuff

I remember that first moon landing, watching it on TV. That first lunar landing inspired an entire generation of boys to study math and science.

They did consider changing the name to ballpit for the rockets but then decided that was too cocky.

Hard to say. But all I know is that it took more courage to climb into that space capsule that I or many in this country have. I could not have done it. Those guys had courage and patriotism that most of us could only dream about. Hollywood can keep their movie; I'll pass.

Snowflakes believe that if something offends them, that something must be eliminated no matter who else is affected. If a TV show offends them, it must be taken off the air. If a movie offends them, they will boycott the movie, the sponsors, the producers or anyone that has ever said a positive thing about it.

I hope this helps you to understand the difference between snowflakes and those of us that simply disagree with things like a movie that attempts to whitewash history.

Flag “Waiver”

By Tazana Joe

How lucky those, who from his lips
Heard Columbus sing his ships
Who paced the halls and offered prayers
Knowing that his goal was theirs
And when he saw the voyage through
They reveled in the flag he flew

And even more in fortune, they
Who welcomed Charles at Le Bourget
A photo, for that moment stands
Old Glory in a thousand hands

When Korolev began the race
He launched a rocket into space
With his success, the papers said
The sky was theirs, the moon is Red

Now, for myself, I’ve crossed no seas
I have no glories such as these
But of great moments, I count one
I was alive when it was done

What price in fire and treasure made
That Gus and Ed and Roger paid
And all the prayers we prayed and prayed

That in our lives, one wish was granted
To be part of the flag they planted
