Oh! And by-the-way. US rocket technology is based on Nazi German technology and research. The US pinched some of it after the war, with the USSR pinching the rest. When it suited the Americans, they made friends with Nazis to further their own ends.

Ours goes from Liverpool Street station in the City of London, to Stansted Airport in Essex. Our's is totally reusable, takes several hundred passengers with the minimum of training and is electrically driven. It's extremely rare for the weather to stop this shuttle. It'll last longer than yours too, and when it does finish, it's replacement won't go back to steam, like your replacement is going back to Apollo. Ours only kills people if they jump in front of it.
