Saw that a couple of days ago. Quite awesome, and I too love Scott's voice and accent.

All fake of course, since rockets don't work in a vacuum....

A former colleague's family was in on the fake as she's related by marriage to Michael Collins, and has a photo from the family briefing room.

She's rather proud of that photo, as one could imagine.
