    I wonder what NASA’s carbon foot print is for these launches? Am I going to have to boycott them?

    Matt, even though I doubt you’ve ever boycotted anyone or anything over their environmental policies I’ll give you credit, that was funny!

    Oh my God, I think I can see my house in that picture!
