    Freaking Beautiful

    THAT WAS SO FREAKING BEAUTIFUL!!!

    I recorded it. Felt just like I did watching the moon shots and the first Space Shuttle flights.

    The most amazing thing to me was that he broke Mach coming in and yet tiptoed to the gorund on landing. 24 miles up, straight in hard fall, yet he just floated in on landing with his faceplate open. Truly beautiful.

    Nice work Felix, really, really nice work.

    He should sleep well tonight. It's hard not to be proud of the man for being that kind of man.

    You know it!

    This also has extremely important applications regarding how to abandon a damaged, derelict, or malfunctioning spacecraft in orbit and survive freefall to a planet for safety.

    The man deserves a lot of credit. He, and his team, have advanced technical science considerably.
