Space Travel
Is anyone watching the SpaceX manned rocket launch live? My kids and I want to watch it and for my kids it’s the first time watching a live space rocket launch. I hope they can successfully launch today.

What are your favourite space travel movies? Some movies that come to my mind are: Gravity, Moon, Sunshine, The Martian, Passengers, Prometheus.

Would you go on a space trip if you’d have the chance?

So, as nobody seemed to watch the launch yesterday, I'm guessing nobody is interested in SpaceX docking at the ISS?

I'm just leaving some quotes regarding space travel here, for anyone who might be interested:

I'm sure the universe is full of intelligent life. It's just been too intelligent to come here. (ARTHUR C. CLARKE, IRC discussion at Scifi.com, November 1, 1996)

There are so many problems to solve on this planet first before we begin to trash other worlds. (E. A. BUCCHIANERI, Brushstrokes of a Gadfly)
Check out Bucchianeri's profile here: https://www.goodreads.com/author/show/2798990.E_A_Bucchianeri (or just google her name. A familiar picture will come up).

NASA's next urgent mission should be to send good poets into space so they can describe what it's really like. (SHANNON HALE, Dangerous)

Returning to Earth, that was the challenging part. (BUZZ ALDRIN, "The Dark Side of the Moon", GQ, January 2015)
