    Pretty good animation ... gives an appreciation for the steady, if not particularly aesthetic, growth of ISS over the years. Would like to have had a little Blue Danube or something to accompany it, but then again ... like Clarke and Kubrick, I'm a romantic.

    Cool animation. Om, you and I are somewhat different, I guess-I would've liked a voice-over from someone like Phil Plait or Neil DeGrasse Tyson myself.

    I'm giving it a 2-4 year window. Looking for improvement in all areas. Redskins, you're on the clock.

    Oh, I'm not sure we're that different brother. Saying I would have liked a little Strauss to accompany it doesn't necessarily mean I wouldn't like to hear a learned voice-over with it as well. Not a big fan of either/or's.

    What would be really nice would be an explanation as we see all those pieces and parts added of what the hell they are all actually for - it would actually make a pretty good Discovery Channel piece

    Watching the animation, all I could think of is 100 years from now, when that thing's degrading orbit is going to make Spacelab coming down look like a cakewalk
