Wish they'd had an astrophysics consultant as well as a math consultant! Larry Fleinhardt: Well, it's only six months, though I will be traveling two hundred and fifty miles above the Earth at eighteen thousand miles an hour. Okay, you know when you stack up champagne glasses and fill them with champagne. you don't wanna turn around and realise you've lost...
