Ooooh.... Aaaahh... zzzz....

NASA needs a new spokesperson.

Here's a hint - if you have to resort to the following as a way to make the manned space program seem interesting:

"Two vehicles weighing 230,000 pounds going 17,500 mph, it's tough stuff,"
- Mission Management Team leader John Shannon

you're trying too hard.

Two words: relative velocity.

Unless you consider driving a car down the street whilst hurtling through the milky way galaxy "tough stuff".

Too bad I just happened on this site.

Relative to what? How about the atmosphere, which at that altitude is going maybe 1000 mph?
