"[SLS is made of] lots of different parts made by lots of different people all over the country!"

Don't forget the Europeans, they're pretty important here too!

Lots of different camera views of the booster, can't wait to see them all during firing.

Mike mentioning that while every single piece of data can be recovered from today's firing, telemetry bandwidth narrows the amount of data that can be sent down during an actual flight.

I'm a few miles away at the ATK media viewing area, saw Tyson from Survivor there, he's part of our group. Lots of people here including Cady Coleman (who I met) and Bill Gerstenmaier

I'll even excitedly look forward to "flags and footprints" and suborbital missions. Just fly...somewhere.

SRB Manager recalls Atlantis (STS-125) and Endeavour (STS-400) on the pads and thought "I'd do this job for free".

Thought the timing was off. Wasn't a T-0. This is a planned hold.

Why SLS for Deep Space? "It's the only thing we've got". (SpaceX fans spit out their coffee).
