I know some of you guys get a buzz on these satellite launches so just in case you missed it, there is an episode currently running on Worlds Toughest fixes that follows all the stages that go into the Arian 5 commercial Sat launch.

Unfortunetly it's from the French Guiana ESA base, so you can expect a lot of croissants being eaten and a relaxed attitude as millions of Alarms go off:lol:

Seriously though the rocket being held up with just two straps did seem Crazy.

Set your DVR's, its on again Sunday 16 Aug at 2am on National Geographic channel
