Shaving & Talking #13 - Elvado - SpaceX

In this video of shaving & talking we feature the shaving cream Elvado. I’m still not sure why I have this in my den. It's a good soap but not the best I’ve used the scent on this is that of an almond. It’s very nice but nothing special. I still can’t understand why they call this a shaving cream and not a soap. it is in no way a cream but yet it is called that. Now, people may say Don your soaps are more like creams but you label them soaps and I get the irony in that but still, it bothers me.

It was still a great shave with no problems except the lather was disappearing over time from the brush and usually, this kind of thing doesn’t happen much with artisan soaps so for that reason I’m taking this out of the den. I need to go through things I never or hardly use and just get rid of them. I have over the years collected and purchased an amazing amount of software and hardware and with my YouTube channel doing reviews I have been provided products over many years this adds up and I have no room for things that just don’t work for me.

What I talk about in the video is the new release of the NETFLIX documentary Return To Space. This is a look into Elon Musk and how he risked everything for SpaceX. An amazing achievement was founded in 2002. In March 2006 SpaceX made its first Falcon 1 launch, which began successfully but ended prematurely because of a fuel leak and fire. Many other failures after that I didn’t look good but with failures comes learning and corrections and finally September 2008 SpaceX became the first privately owned company to send a liquid-fueled rocket into orbit. Three months later it won a NASA contract for servicing the ISS that was worth more than $1 billion. The first crewed flight of a Dragon capsule to the ISS launched on May 30, 2020, with astronauts Doug Hurley and Robert Behnken. and now talk of going back to the moon in 2023.

When I was a child I dreamed of becoming an astronaut all my toys were space-themed. GIJoe space capsule, and Mattel’s Man in Space Station Major Matt Mason. Now that I’m 62 I get to see all of this unfolding. It's a reality because of Elon Musk and the many talented engineers striving for the same goal. I know I’ll never have my dreams come true but at least I can see them happen for others.
