Heh, I love the "Red Bull Mission Control," with all these engineers sitting around thinking "farking NASA layoffs. Now I have to wear a Red Bull T-shirt to work."

Anyone listening in? The guy is freaking out and he isn't even off the ground yet.

He was concerned that he was running out of oxygen- even after they told him that he has 10 hours of oxygen in his system.

They he was worried that he was going to run out of power. They told him that that was ridiculous, he'd only been on the capsule power for 30 mins...

Wade Phillips is working Mission Control. This might not be a wise decision.
2012-10-09 01:43:20 PM  
Aborted: I guess gravity used weather to shut that thing down.
2012-10-09 01:43:25 PM

Pours 40 of Red Bull on ground.
2012-10-09 01:44:16 PM  
So you are telling me, with all of the money that goes into something like this, that they cannot build some sort of enclosed loft column that will block the gusts?
2012-10-09 01:44:19 PM

2012-10-09 01:44:26 PM

This is one of the rare instances where I'm against abortions. He should have carried it to term.
