Soyuz MS-12 undocking: 2019, A Space Odyssey

A few days ago on the NASA channel I was fortunate enough to catch the undocking for re-entry of the Soyuz MS-12 three-part spacecraft from the International Space Station. At the appointed hour, a spring was unlatched that pushed the MS-12 away from the ISS. The video of this solar panel-winged ship drifting slowly away from the ISS with the huge arc of the blue planet revolving slowly in the background was a breathtaking epilogue to Kubrick's docking sequence in 2001 to Strauss' Tales of the Vienna Woods waltz.


As the Russian capcom murmered while monitoring the video: "Beautiful."

The real thing is incredible good to hear you had the opportunity to see it. I hope I will get to see a liftoff someday of the Superheavy booster SpaceX is working on. Will have nearly twice the thrust of the Saturn V !

^^ I had another remarkable spaceship encounter a few years ago. My father was active in the space program, and I vowed that I would make it down to Cape Canaveral before the end of the Shuttle program. We decided to go see the next-to-last launch, which would be the shuttle Endeavor scheduled to launch in early November, 2010.

So we took a redeye to Florida for November 1st, but the launch kept getting scrubbed due to hydrogen leaks, among other things. We took the first scrub as an opportunity to drive out the Overseas Highway to Key West while monitoring the launch prep. A week later we were in Titusville, but the launch was scrubbed and rescheduled for February (eventually launching in May). So we had to head back to our home in Los Angeles near Dodger Stadium without seeing Endeavor.

Two years later, the retired Endeavor was being flown west to its final resting place in Exposition Park, California on the back of its 747 transport (an amazing spectacle itself). Upon arrival in the Los Angeles area, the two aircraft flew a low-altitude snapshot tour of scenic locales, one of them being Dodger Stadium. We were standing on our deck, cameras ready (we thought), but were not prepared when the Endeavor roared up from the hill behind us and swooshed directly overhead, no more than two hundred feet above our deck. We had traveled across the country and back without being able to see it, and then as if by magic there it was -- right in our front yard. Simply amazing, something I will never forget.

That was The Blue Danube waltz, not Tales from the Vienna Woods.
