around the web for 2-20-14How high’s the water, mama?
Five feet high and risin’
How high’s the water, papa?
Five feet high and risin’

Well, the rails are washed out north of town
We gotta head for higher ground
We can’t come back till the water comes down,
Five feet high and risin’

  • I am a giant space nerd. I’ve posted several space and astronomy links here before. This one is one of the most incredible videos I’ve ever seen from NASA. This is video from cameras strapped on the solid fuel rocket boosters during a shuttle launch. This is incredible video. (iO9)

  1. The video from the shuttle launch was fascinating. I was surprised that as the structure came back into the atmosphere it actually slowed down all the way to impact. I figured that the force of gravity would actually cause it to increase in speed if anything. Thanks for the link.
