    I just got both the BD and DVD set to give away yesterday. They seriously look amazing and I'm quite sad I have to give them away, but my loss can be your gain!


    So whaddya gotta do to win? Just post below ONCE and one time ONLY, with the NASA astronaut you were most inspired by.

    Will pick a winner sometime after Noon Tomorrow (Wednesday), so be sure to be in before then, anyone who posts AFTER that but before I do the rolls is eligble but I wont guarantee your entry unless its before 12:01 PM EST Oct. 1st, capiche?

    -Open to residents of US/Canada only.
    -Winners must have been registered HTF members before 11:59 PM September 29th, 2008.
    -Limiting winners to one HTF prize every 90 days, so please don't enter if you have won anything from HTF in the last 3 months. Exception: Deal or no Deal winners.
    -HTF staff prohibited from winning.
    -All decisions by me and the HTF owners are final in case of a dispute or tie =)
    -Editing posts or threads will result in disqualification.
    -Void where prohibited etc. This is done for entertainment value only and no prize substitutions are possible.

    Simple and logical enough? PLEASE remember to only post once in this thread, if you want to comment on the film itself please use the search button to see if one already exists for it or start a new thread if there isn't one!

    Had the GI Joe Mercury capsule that came with the shiny silver suit and helmet that actually plugged into the capsule!

    I played the red plastic 45 of audio from the Friendship 7 mission over and over till I could recite it from memory.

    Alan Shepard, the first American in space, who made his voyage when so very many of the variables of space travel were unknown: the effects of weightlessness, radiation, reentry, takeoff acceleration. His spaceshot was truly a crap shoot--well-calculated within the limits of the technology of his time--but a huge risk, nonetheless. His courage turned questions into answers and forged the path for all subsequent American space missions. To this nine-year-old boy, his adventure pointed the way to a future of limitless possibility.

    Ten years later, after a bout with a health issue and corrective surgery, he actively returned to the space program as commander of a moon mission and walked on the lunar surface in 1971. So he spanned the birth and the maturity of America's great space decade.

    (Plus, he was the creator of the legendary Shepard's prayer, "Please, dear God, don't let me f* up." [​IMG] )

    For me it's Buzz Aldrin. I feel he's always been underrated compared to that other guy who also went to the moon (can't remember his name [​IMG]). And he's had an episode of Monty Python's Flying Circus named after him, can't get any better than that [​IMG].

    Gotta go with Alan Shepard. Like others said, it takes a pair of big ones to go first.
