If you go and watch the V2 videos from thunda you will find the proof that it was karl.

I said it after the show that they were the best fireworks I've ever seen. The video gives you an idea of what it was like but it was actually heaps better
Many years ago the great British explorer George Mallory, who was to die on Mount Everest, was asked why did he want to climb it. He said, "Because it is there."
Well, space is there, and we're going to climb it
