    So does all that hardware on the launch platform just get burnt to a crisp? I wonder how long you have to let it cool off before people can go work on the platform again?

    If I recall correctly, much of it is heavily damaged during launch and must be rebuilt.

    I wish I had been around to see one of those things take off.

    Also, looking back, isn't it amazing how the country gave a damn about something like this - vs. "American Idol" and Britney Spears...?

    What I've heard is that the Saturn V was the loudest man-made device ever built.

    Even louder than a Rolling Stones concert.

    I bet a hydrogen bomb detonation is louder... but still!

    I believe the average cruise ship gets about six inches per gallon.
