Something that rarely happens to me did last night: I became totally engrossed by a television program.

Nova: Battle of the X Planes

Nova's gotten a bit rock video-ey over the past couple years (the String Theory program was a bit low on content but high on catchy graphics and loud music), but still, it is one of the worthwhile programs on TV.

This was a fascinating look into a world that we don't tend to get to see much of. In just two hours, we were taken on a trip from concept to working product in the bidding process for probably the most lucrative defense contract ever.

Of course, as always, I'd love for them to go more into detail, but given the constraints (How many would understand the process involved? Also, there's the security interest.), the folks at Nova did an admirable job.
