How To Go To Space (with XKCD!)

Great, simple video explaining how to go to space, using only the 1000 most commonly used words in the English language. It does a pretty decent job, but it’s a bit odd hearing him saying “upgoer” or “fire water”, rather than just engine and fuel.

I love the animations (Randall Munroe of xkcd fame draws them), and they complement the video nicely. Remember, when going to space, make sure your upgoer goes up, and doesn’t fire the fire water up so your upgoer goes down… Onwards!
