The Air Force looks down and sees the tactical advantage of the high ground and goes home to their air conditioned billets, but the Army takes that high ground, secures the tactical advantage and takes the fight to the enemy with direct fire. And the Army gets "ragged on" for that. I love ...

Actually KSC used to have an "Unused property list" that you could access that had shuttle tiles on it. No research or anything was mandated, but you had to account for the tile (I think) annually. Check the KSC webpage - I'll see if I can find the information sheet on the program I got at...

I'm betting Season Four gets the full go and that it's the last one. Especially if the big ending of the next episode is what the rumors say - major implications.

If anyone dares or cares, aintitcool news has posted some spoilers regarding the season finale on March 25. I've seen a bunch of rumored spoilers, too. The episode looks like it will rock.

However, the current rumor is we'll be waiting until January 2008 for more....

Finally a Galactica thread for FrakHeads like me. :D I love this show. Haven't missed an episode yet, and saw the mini-series when it came out. That being said, I was a huge fan of the original series in the seventies but the two shows are worlds apart. The original BSG was a campy take-off of Star ...

I'm currently planning on attending STS-118 as well. All of the Challenger Centers are supposed to be invited to participate because of the significance of the flight from our perspective. Barbara Morgan was Christa McAuliffe's backup for STS-51L. She stayed with the program and went completely thro...

LTC Crandall was played in the movie by Greg Kinnear. One of the best performances of the movie in my opinion. What an amazing story for both he and "Too Tall" Freeman. Army helicopter pilots from Vietnam are amazing anyway. I'm glad to have known several of them in my lifetime simply beca...

I also remember walking onto the Space Camp campus in Florida when I was there in 1997. I begged and pleaded to be able to see inside the main building but in the end, all I got to see was the outside. We were there to visit KSC down the road, and we didn't have much extra time, but my parents stop...

Another story, albeit a short one: So if you've ever been up to the B-52 trailers, for years the decking between the trailers was approached by a nice wooden stair set on the Barnside and a flimsy metal crew ladder on the road side (boy I hope it's not there any more). It's an early summer morning i...

Theres no trailerp ark nearby... You can't see it from AC, but less than 3/4 of a mile away, directly ESE from the Barn is a trailer park. It's almost directly across from the entrance to the Botanical Gardens and comes really close to the apartments where Spanky spent his first summer on the Dino ...
