Okay, it's a commercial, but it's a really cool commercial. SpaceX, the private company just awarded a $75 million NASA contract to help prepare its spacecraft to carry a live crew, posted this video to show how its Dragon spacecraft works.  The company already has a contract to fly cargo to the International Space Station once the shuttle program end My favorite part's about 1:20 in: The computer-generated crew give each other a high five. Some of the other animation is slick enough to make it hard to tell where live footage ends and animation begins. [youtube http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=6p6EruPdoXY&w=560&h=349]
