Black Sky Trip Causes Overwhelming Emotions!
27 January 2006 | by bswapp686See all my reviews

Caution: If you watch this you may be exposed to hardly imaginable exploits of ordinary people which may cause outbursts of emotion.

I watched this with the father of one of the team members. I watched both the original flight and the X-game winning run. To watch this humble team go through the steps they took to achieve Mr. Ratan's dream brought out emotions in me not usually evoked. I was actually watching a dream of mine come true, except in proxy.

I now have a dream that Mr. Ratan will improve and enhance spaceflight, as he displayed in the NG video wherein the common person could vacation in his space station or be awed by simply traveling there. Of these things have I dreamt to be a part of since my childhood.
