-FUPPETS- Loves Rocketry and Super Slo-Mo

Oh yes. This is exactly what today needed. -FUPPETS- is ecstatic to find a tremendous video of the launch of Apollo 11, the first manned lunar landing. This footage is filmed at 500 frames/second, which makes the 8 minute film represent just over 30 seconds of actual time. It is amazing to see just how hard it is to launch a projectile off of our Earth's surface, and into either orbit, or further into outer space. It is also humbling to know the bravery shown by the men and women who strap themselves atop this controlled explosion and ride it out to the desolation of space.
Scientists say that very small animals see our movements as lumbering and slow, since they are used to living in a much quicker state of being. This is partly why it is so hard to swat a fly, for, while we may be swinging that fly-swatter super hard, to the fly it is coming down with plenty of time to spare so it can move away.
Enjoy this footage. -FUPPETS- definitely will.
