It always amazes me that the Russians carry a rocket on the back of a 
train to the launch site, then launch it on time and then land the crew 
on hard ground in what seems to be a very amateur and haphazard fashion 
yet it seems to work very well.

Here, if a bird farts in the wrong direction within 30 miles of Kennedy 
Space Center, the whole launch is scrubbed!

Maybe we should just get the Russians to do it for us!
