One of the best transitions I’ve ever seen in a movie.
I read somewhere that people were literally falling out of their seats laughing at that scene when the movie was first screened.
I always crack up when I see it :)
Anyone else freaking out about the bottom gif how when he turns around, the flower and lei just suddenly appear out of nowhere?

Soviet cosmonaut Yuri Gagarin died in mysterious circumstances in March 1968, but the cause of the first man in space’s death has finally been revealed.
For more than 20 years, according to Russia Today, Gagarin’s colleague and the first man to conduct a spacewalk Aleksey Leonov, has been attempting to gain permission to disclose details about what happened. He has now finally be allowed.
The official report at the time concluded that Gagarin and his instructor, Vladimir Seryogin, attempted to avoid an object in the air — geese or a hot air balloon — by perming a manoeuvre that led to a tailspin and collision with the ground.
However, Leonov says things weren’t quite that simple. Another jet was flying dangerously close to Gagarin’s craft, in extremely bad weather. The jet’s passage pushed Gagarin’s plane into a tailspin forcing it to crash.
It’s unknown who was piloting the other jet — that information has been kept confidential as the individual is still alive, albeit in poor health. “I was asked not to disclose the pilot’s name. He is a good test pilot. It will fix nothing,” Leonov said.
The full story can be found over at Russia Today.

In December 2011, space telescopes witnessed an event that astonished astronomers. A comet plunged deep through the atmosphere of the Sun and survived.
Comets are reckoned to be pretty insubstantial things, despite their sometimes lengthy, spectacular tails. So this ball of rock and ice, called Comet Lovejoy (C/2011 W3), had been expected to break up and become vaporised in the encounter.
In fact the comet came out relatively unscathed, grew a fresh magnificent tail and became an impressive sight for astronauts on the International Space Station as well as on Earth.
Lovejoy’s close encounter has been extremely useful for solar scientists because it has allowed them to study a region deep within the Sun’s atmosphere, or corona, that is otherwise near impossible to observe.
Now views in the extreme-ultraviolet region of the spectrum from three solar spaceprobes have provided new information on the characteristics of the magnetic fields embedded in the region through which Comet Lovejoy passed.
