Congratulations, and well done to the ESA, especially after the loss of NASA's Antares and Virgin Galactic's second spaceship - this was a well-needed morale boost for the astronomy community.
Is there a video of that Shaun? I'd like to see that also

In an age where we live today, with recession and money redirected from the Sciences, I am amazed that projects like this are still being funded and undertaken, I feel that there is still hope for this civilization, and I can't wait to read about all the new discoverers on how the planets were formed and the big bang. All because of this one project.
I really hope we can all decide to stop spending money on [blowing each other up / protecting ourselves from other people blowing us up] and instead work together as a species to do some cool shit.
