This is Awesome: U.S. Space Team’s “Up Goer Five”

by Jason Major on November 12, 2012

xkcd presents a Saturn V schematic using the 1,000 most used English words (xkcd.com)

Randall Munroe at xkcd did it again, this time with an illustration of a Saturn V described using only the 1,000 — er, ten hundred — words people use most often. The result is amusing, insightful and, as always, undeniably awesome.

Check out the Saturn-sized full frame comic below.

(And remember, if the end where the fire comes out of  “starts pointing toward space you are having a bad problem and will not go to space today.”)
