US Space Program: spawned by some crazy motherfuckers.

Stars for the film that inspired me to enter the aeronautics field.

Back when rednecks did things other than vote Republican and hate America.

And today Baumgartner did it without a mothafuckin' plane!!!!! (well, maybe, speed not confirmed yet)

I'm guessing he did not do it, it felt like that chute came out a bit early.

Don't worry, he still broke some amazing records today.

I'm reading on CNN he hit Mach 1.24. Damn that's fast.

Badass. My favorite seen in this movie is the one where one of these guys takes some old-ass 1950s plane so high up into the atmosphere that for a moment he can see outer space through the canopy.
I also like the leather helmets. Reminds me of one the best things I heard in the Army: "we're all going to die, but I have a helmet!"

That is to say, favorite scene I seen.

That might have been Yeager too, he went 21 miles up in a rocket boosted F-104. IMHO that scene is a good analogy for his frustration at being shut out of the space program because NASA didn't want astronauts who took such independent risks.

Triumphant synths.

I LOVE this movie. My dad took me to see it in the theater, and at 10 years old, I was completely enthralled and amazed.

My Grandma lived in Tucson, and EVERY time we visited I insisted my dad take me to the Pima air & space museum. Last time pop & I went out to Tucson, it was to pack up grandma's house after she died. We also went to Pima.
