    Guess this guy never played orbiter

    Technically speaking: NASA cannot and will not engage in any sort of controversy. from THIS all of the information that they give must be factual and available for review. And that is the Law, and the right of the first amendment as well. Sad, but true :(

    3 word game

    A Silly but possible idea...

    I can see where both of you have a beef, however as there was a thread long ago about private spaceflight and legal ramifications. FAA is overall in charge of spaceflight from United States, Flights from Wallops Island are still regulated by the FAA, just as a complimentary regulatory agency...

    Did Apollo 15 need a plane change?

    I was doing a bit of math, however jacked up my math was. After I figured where they launched and then the heading, then the inclination to intercept. Then I found my math was about 10 degrees off. Does anyone know if Apollo 15 did a plane correction?

    1,000 hours in a jet plane?!

    You don't necessarily have to attend the Academy, nor Annapolis to go to NASA, there are some colleges that have a ROTC program that would help you get in. Such as UTEP and Purdue which have some of the finest Aerospace programs in the U.S. I would highly recommend you to look at what the...
