You see stuff like this in the movies all the time, so it seems like this kind of thing comes cheap. Nevertheless, just watching this real video (actually, it's sped up because it'd be too long otherwise), you get a feeling of something marvelous -- a representation of extraordinary forces and awesome power. The space station and the space shuttle are flying at tremendous speeds and it is truly a spectacle to behold. If you watch, you'll see the outline of the shuttle shadowing the space station as the angle changes. It's truly remarkable, and, to me, humbling of just how amazing these machines really are.
I'm a space nerd, a family man, a middle of right-wing conservative, a church-goer, an enthusiastic guy, and a sufferer of occasional lower back pain. I'm fairly young with three wonderful children. Life is great, but far too short for all the things I want to do!
