The Daily Show on the Final Shuttle Launch

The Daily Show on the Final Shuttle Launch

In case you missed it, The Daily Show with Jon Stewart did a segment about the final space shuttle launch.

Daily Show reporter John Oliver was at the launch, and does a really funny piece about it. Though it’s meant for humor, he actually has a good interview with Apollo astronaut Jim Lovell. Two sound bites:

  • John Oliver to Jim Lovell: “So we’re going to outsource our hopes and dreams to India?”
  • Lovell to Oliver later on in the segment about people needing to have goals, something to strive for: “To give up on that dream is to give up on America.”

But do remember, this is a comedy show.
