Longing for freedom….

The rare late midterm approaches, and I’ll be hermited for the next day or so. So, in honour of my lack of freedom, I present this supremely badass video of a group of people who commemorate the launch of every space shuttle by skydiving while the shuttle launches. A glorious celebration of freedom and technology, with a dash of beauty on the side. I particularly love the moment when the shuttle gracefully arcs out of the earths shadow, creating this artificial pillar of fire that you can see from hundreds of kilometers. We, however, get to see it from a couple of kilometers in the air.

<Sighs>. At least THEY are having a good time.
