ADVENTURE: Twisted Teeth sends their Astronaut to Space
So recently I have been fascinated by Space. Have been researching and reading alot about the 1973 Skulab and the move to International Space Station.
Skylab was an American space station with a manned workshop, solar observatory, and other systems that orbited the Earth from 1973 to 1979. It was launched, initially unmanned, by a modified Saturn V rocket, and weighed about 77 metric tonnes in orbit by itself.
Read about Skylab on Wikipedia
On a recent trip to Orlando, I walked into the NASA gift shop and bought a coin that contains metal from that was flown to the moon. The coin is to celebrate the 40th anniversary of Apollo.
I know enough writing about stuff.
Here is the actual footage of TwistedTeeth Astronaut's launch into space.
