E-ticket ride (video)

| July 26, 2006

Ever wonder what it would be like to fall back to earth from 24 miles up? NASA attached a video camera to one of the Space Shuttle’s solid rocket boosters and recorded the booster’s entire flight, from pre-launch to splashdown.

Hat tip to The Llama Butchers.  ..bruce..

Toss up for 10 points: how many of you know what an “E-ticket” is? How many are old enough to have ever actually used one?

  1. Space Mountain at Disneyworld was an E ticket!

    Actually, I spent most of my time at the Haunted Mansion, dunno what ticket that was, and Mr. Toad’s Wild Ride, which was fun but probaby a wimpy A ticket.

    As was the Matterhorn at Disneyland Anaheim.

    I don’t think so. The A ticket rides were things like Cinderella’s Castle. I’m sure Mr. Toad (which was one of my favorites as well) rated at least a B or a C. ..bruce..
