rockets are cool

Do you read Phil Plait's Bad Astronomy website? You should. He recently linked to this movie from Universe Today. It's amazing, especially a view at about 2:30 from one of the separated SRBs. I challenge anyone to watch this and to then complain that science is boring.

Yeah, we quickly become desensitized to real science when our science fiction is so much more awesome.

Consider this. We have two robots crawling around on Mars sending us pictures. That's amazing! Yet, when people look at a picture from another planet, they're like, "That's it? Just a bunch of rocks?"
