    The response to this video has been huge. One of our biggest videos ever. We worked our ass off on these animations. Big shout out to Mike and Eli, our stellar animators. Also big thanks to Curiosity Stream, without them we simple would not have the budget to make something this ambitious. If you liked this video, you will love that Armstrong documentary on CS. It gives me some serious goals to work towards. Packed with information and beautiful story telling.

    The engineering is impressive but what will be even more impressive is when we send humans to the moon and Mars and develop cities in the future as well space stations in space. That will be the most exciting thing I believe since the moon landing in the 1960's, which will excite everyone in the world in terms of major progress. I think we all need to pick up the pace and work to develop starships and super ships with light speed technology. The technology we seen in Star Wars and Star Trek which we view as science fiction has to eventually become reality, much like what we seen in Back to the Future 2 the films. It is not surprising many inspiring scientists take famous works for inspiration from science fiction to envision futurism for space exploration.
