(Ew, that USMil promotional video was super jingoistic. Also (Sinister voice) "Face it, the world is changing…" Ugh. Always seems weird that the military is fear mongering instead of projecting capability and peace.)

(Another ick: "Manned spaceflight" That's how you can tell is a military film. If it was NASA they'd have used "crewed".)

(Still seems very audacious to start out with one rocket, then four minutes later it has become four rockets. It's like reverse Voltron.)

(We've also entered a time where watching a rocket explode is not necessarily fatal for the mission. (Or the crew))
