He was a true hero as were those who took the journey with him; no doubt about it. It takes a lot of courage to sit on top of an explosion that's going to carry you somewhere no human had ever traveled. There were so very many things that could have gone wrong, as the Apollo 13 astronauts later discovered first hand.

You were right. As the General Discussions forum was the wrong place for it, this thread has since been moved to the Lounge by one of the moderators. In addition, I gave it a "Seriously Thoughtful" tag to distinguish it from the usual light banter here.

Off-topic: Is your name Kepler, or is your User Name a tribute to the mathematician/astronomer Johannes Kepler (and of course, Douglas Adams)?
