Rocket Launch Failures Only Temporary

North Korea has had a string of missile launch failures over the last decade. But Americans need to recall the rash of US launch failures in the 1950s. Failures that eventually made things safer for astronauts in Projects Mercury.

All countries' rocket launches fail many times, at first. See failures 15 seconds in.

Then things go right to a glorious soundtrack, The Planets by Holst. Hear Mars at 50 seconds, in above Youtube. Especially good with Jupiter 1 minute 30 seconds in.
(best played LOUD!).

The film, The Right Stuff, did a great job integrating music with visuals.

(with a bit of help from The Right Stuff,  Project MercuryHolst and his Planets).
