Y’all should turn on NASA TV right now
They’re showing this excellent 1960s Project Mercury propaganda film, with a narrator who sounds like he swallowed a handful of Nyquil. He keeps addressing me like I’m Alan Shepard. “Your fellow astronauts helped you with your launch,” etc.
I’m excited. Every time I’ve flipped on NASA TV they’ve always had dead air.
I miss having NASA TV on my actual cable line-up. But back then basically the only thing ever on when I would try to watch something was “This Is The Earth From Space Because We Can”.
