Students who still have a lot ahead of them. Students like me, who still have dreams, goals, and students who still aim for achievements. But because of this tragedy, it all faded away. 

I bow and salute to the brave students who saved the lives of others and sacrificed themselves. They are heroes. They are people who deserves a lot better than awards. They deserve to be in Heaven, a place full of happiness and there will be no more sufferings. I also pray for the lives of the family and the people involved in this accident and specially the souls of these heroes.

I hope that the students who were saved by these mighty students will live their lives to the fullest, achieve their dreams and goals and love their family more. I also wish that they will live being inspired by the heroes who saved their lives. Please do so.

And for the captain, my middle finger salutes you. Live well. In guilt. Thank you.

Looking back at Apollo 16.

humanoidhistory:

On April 16, 1972, the Apollo 16 mission blasted off from Cape Canaveral on a journey to the Moon. Astronauts John Young, Charlie Duke, and Ken Mattingly went on the penultimate adventure of the Apollo program with a mission that lasted 11 days, 1 hour, and 51 minutes, ending at 2:45 PM EST on April 27

Dear science side of tumblr- How did the camera on the moon pan up to follow the ascent stage of the lunar module? I assume remote control but what kind of device was it?

It was the camera off the rover set up to watch the launch and controlled from mission control.  Due to the time delay of transmission from the Earth to the Moon, the zoom and movement of the camera had to be timed manually and in realtime by someone to track the movement of the ascent stage of the lunar module since it was done live for television.  I believe the same was done for Apollo 17 as well.

Cool, thank you!
