Tranquility Base

I was listening last week to the Space Shuttle making its final approach and landing after a successful mission. They played the conversation between the Shuttle pilot and NASA leading up to the landing. I love how calm they are about everything. It almost sounds like they are talking in their sleep. They say things like "speed is 750 miles per hour" in the most tranquil voice. I also love how, if they say that the landing is scheduled for 9:11, the wheels touch down exactly at 9:11. I think it would be cool if every job went so smoothly and without drama.

Spend a billion dollars per flight and i promise you regular airplane trips will run smoothly too.
