They ever think about sending parts up in sections.? Then reassembling, refueling, and making the trip, how bout inflatable habitats with inner linings formed after inflation with polyurethane
Foam between linings everything can be packaged small then pressure inflated and filled.?

Why after rocket separation (at 5:00) is everything now in a blue hue? No reason for this except unless this was staged...

Did they take any pictures from when the spacecraft was at its apoapsis? I'm tired of seeing pictures of the earth in LEO.

The J2 engines are the only rocket engines to date that can be restarted in space.

Pretty cool to know my name was included in the program that sent people's names into space on this flight. Surprised only a million or so people signed up for that. I'm hoping when I die to have my ashes sent out into deep space by the Celestis program. As close as I'll ever get to being an astronaut.

Is there a specific name/nomenclature for the booster and rocket config they are using? It seems to be to new standard, seeing as how both NASA and SpaceX use it. I just ask because it seems relatively new and I'd like a short-hand to refer to this setup for Kerbal Space Program.

Is there any sound in space because I heard the boosters when it was still in the atmosphere but once it got out into orbit I couldn't hear them anymore

Isn't it high time to use SI system NASA and U.S.? Even the British doesn't use that feet / miles anymore.
