HOMEMADE SPACESHIP

I expect many of you have already seen this, but it's incredibly cool.

Homemade Spacecraft from Luke Geissbuhler on Vimeo.

It reminds me of - memory's a bit hazy here - a very old Bruce Sterling story in which stoner lo-tech balloonistnerds ascend to reclaim abandoned US and Soviet spacestations and create an off-surface society / network.

It's Gibson & Sterling's Red Star, Winter Orbit you're thinking of: https://secure.wikimedia.org/wikipedia/en/wiki/Red_Star,_Winter_Orbit ^_^

Cheers! I'm old and my brain often fails me.

I expect the story is absolutely nothing like I remember it lol.

I meant to say: I really liked the idea that the guy in the film so closely involved his son the way he did - that was one of the best bits about it. The lad'll remember that for the rest of his life.
