aww, but launching a giant multi-million dollar rocket filled with liquid oxygen with 2/3 of that fuel carrying just the weight of the fuel is so terribly efficient. How dare they show how retardedly easy it is to just go up and keep going? What next, an air tight, runway take off plane that can increase in altitude until it's in space? What would we do with all the extra taxpayers' money?
