"Sort of an unshakable belief in your own infallibility, that's what The Right Stuff is: that you're immortal, that you can do anything that is thrown at you"
-Harrison Schmidt, Apollo 17 astronaut
Started watching "In the Shadow of the Moon" tonight, it's good. It's a documentary that came out in 2007, featuring a bunch of the Apollo astronauts talking about going to the moon. They are all old men now. I got the quote above from it. For those of you who are ignorant, "The Right Stuff" was a phrase that was coined to describe the super-elite pilots who were selected to become astronauts. It was said they had "The Right Stuff". (incidentally the 80's movie by that name wasn't that great. Every time I have read an astronaut or anyone who would know talk about that movie they say it was mostly crap.)(I hear them mostly say very postive things about the movie Apollo 13)
Anyhow. I haven't finished watching it yet, but it's good so far. Reccomend it.
