From CinemaBlend:

Obituaries are never easy to write, and Adam Savage’s remarks to CNET seem somewhat cavalier at first considering all the hours that he and Buster put in together on MythBusters. Still, it’s hard to imagine a Buster that could have endured a life without explosions and blasts and crashes after his time on MythBusters. He might not have been able to come home to a quiet life after all of the work he put in with Adam Savage and Jamie Hyneman. Going out in a literal and damn epic blaze of glory is no less than what he deserved. If you’re in need of some closure, check out the clip of Buster’s final rocket ride:

discovery_final_12Someone I know had a relative that worked at NASA and shot this video from the shuttle hanger back in 2006. Pretty awesome! Turn up the speakers and listen to those engines come to life and ROAR!

On a sad note, I really think NASA has lost its vision. It’s probably full of scientists but no one with a real vision. We need moon colonies… Space Stations in orbit around the Moon. We need explorers to reach out further than we ever have before. Were are the Magellan’s? The Columbus’s?
