Re: Anime Thread of Doom

I just watched Whisper of the Heart; then I looked up that country roads song. Very nice movie; however it is about teenagers, but I don't know if many teenagers would enjoy it. I watched it as a teenager and was very pleased by it. It's fun in a way that you're seeing her life in a gorgeous Studio...

Are you supposed to go horizontal for reentry? My current approach in missions is to strap boosters and go in a collision course orbit with a very high apoapsis.
