Thanks to Netflix, I just saw The Right Stuff for the first time. I enjoyed it. But then again, I dig that space stuff.
But it reminded me that I've interviewed Scott Carpenter, one of the first seven astronauts. They were the guys who flew the Mercury missions. But while I'm a space history buff -- I was pretty disappointed with my interview. Here I am, talking to a living legend about space, and also his time in some undersea lab... and well, he just wasn't tracking. He seemed a little off his game.
It left me with less than a great impression. But having seen the movie now, it has restored awe in those early space pioneers. It wasn't a great interview, but hey, at least I had the chance!
