    NASA sucks, Kubrick filmed the landing, that looks nothing like a spaceship should(wheres the grates?) and thats a freaking DELL.

    No one in their right mind would spend that much money on a rocket and choose a Dell.
    Cancel their funding, we got a war to win.

      You know that film was a mockumentary, right?
