How to Go to Space, Explained in the Simplest Way Possible

By Casey Chan on at

Do you want to know how to go to space? But is the technical explanation way too complicated for you and all those terms and laws of physics and complicated maths just too damn confusing? Don’t worry! This truly hilarious video from MinutePhysics and XKCD will explain how to get to space using only the 1000 most commonly used words in our language. That is, it will be the simplest (and funniest) explanation of space travel you’ve ever heard.

That ridiculous and riotously absurd limitation turns rockets into “up goers that burn fire water” and NASA into “really important people” and astronaut training into “learning how to fly sky boats, and be really good at it” and “not get a sick body, or head”. It’s so funny, trust me.
