    Are you supposed to say "tower jet", instead of counting down, when you launch it? ;)

    In the movie "Apollo 13", near the end of the Saturn V launch sequence (they are near space), Tom Hanks reaches up and hits a switch and says, "Tower jet!" (or "Tower eject"?).

    Then the Apollo capsule Abort Tower blasts off the capsule.

    Ahh...I think it's "eject". But if we did it on the launch pad then the capsule would be left sitting there.:D

    Actually it is tower jet, as in jettison.
