Cool video of shuttle launch from the SRB perspective.  That’s all history now.  I was never a big fan of the shuttle, it was way oversold and its design was compromised by Nixon budget cuts.  We’d have been far, far better off if this country had continued to develop Apollo hardware instead of pursuing a fanciful dream of “reusable” spacecraft.  Thanks alot, Walter Cronkite.  He actually played a substantial role in getting Apollo killed with his constant carping about “only getting a tiny capsule back from that huge rocket.”  Who cares!  It was way more capable and flexible than the shuttle.

Anyways……here’s a bit of history for Tuesday of Holy Week, before I go on break.  Too bad David R. cannot see this, as he very wisely gave up the intrawebs for Lent.
