  1. I know what you are trying to show us. But on my screen this is not much I can follow or learn about. What are you trying to achieve by showing this?

  2. Hello Esa, the timelapse of the trainride and erection of the rocket is really nice, but you should have cut the real footage of the launch and most important the sound in upon launch. Love the video though 🙂
