before mark did and you know we both had similar training and experiences, both as you know test pilots and astronauts before we actually flew. and after my first flight i tried to explain to mark what the first eight and a half minutes of the mission, was like, and to the best of my ability, and then when he got back and was getting out of the shuttle after landing and i was there to greet him. the first thing he said to me was that he no idea what the assent was going to be like. it is just that much of an impressive incredible experience to be riding the rocket behind or in front of 7.5 million pounds of thrust. >> that would qualify you for daytona 500. you would be on with that. i will tell you that is serious muscle. is there anything you guys given your space flight experience have disagreed on
