Beautiful, awe-inspiring pictures.

A friend of mine works for them, and we were marvelling at a world where an Ariane launch is so reliable that we are so completely jaded by the news of it.

Here is one of my favorite pictures from a launch in 2016:

Of course I am a little biased because that happens to be a picture from one of my missions. And from experience Fabien, I can tell you that not everyone takes for granted Ariane's reliability, especially when one has several hundred million dollars and years of work riding on the tip of a controlled explosion. The stress leading up to launch is palatable, and on launch day the roomful of faces show it--- here is a video grab of me and two of my colleagues shortly after liftoff. We were frozen like, stomachs churning, until separation.

The space biz is not for the meek (or the sober. Just rewatching the launch video makes me want to have a drink. :D )
