Up Yonder

Flipped on the TV for a second to find something boring enough to fall asleep watching.  I'm now watching the second attempt at launching a 'Starliner' by Boeing.  Well, it's technically the second launch, but attempting the first successful rendezvous of the ship with the ISS.  

I seem to remember watching a previous attempt spin out of control.

The idea of space travel is so cool.  Practically, it's not that easy.  If things go wrong, survivability is nonexistent.  Still, breaking out of the grasp of terrestrial Earth is an amazing concept.
