This is a cool documentary on a rocket technology Soviet scientists developed during the cold war, thought impossible in the U.S.

Since getting addicted to Kerbal Space Program, I've gotten re-fascinated with rocketry. I was a little put off by the anti-American attitude of the writers of the documentary. I don't know why they can't just appreciate the engineering for what it is. The American engineers seemed humble enough about their inability to solve the closed-loop design problems when presented with a real solution. I guess the writers just wanted to rub it in their faces. Although I'm sure they didn't have the courtesy to do it when they were interviewing the American engineers. Must be due to that British-American Cold War rivalry.
Wait a minute...
One perk to being a dad is you get to watch cartoons again without explaining yourself.
