    Oh, SS2 looks beautiful!

    I don't know what's wrong with me, I was watching a promotional video on the VG website a few minutes ago- a new one, but pretty much like videos they've had in the past- and I started tearing up. Actually tearing up, and I don't really cry that much.

    Hormones or inspiration?
    The greatest journey of all time, for all to see
    Every mission makes our dreams reality
    And our destiny begins with you and me
    Through all space and time, the achievement of mankind
    As we sail the sea of discovery, on heroes’ wings we fly!

    They're talking of eighteen months' worth flight tests, gradually adding altitude and funtionality. Now all I have to do is save up about £6k a month for a ticket. Return.
