Space Shuttle Atlantis Up-Close I've worked on that gang plank, the final path of steel to the shuttle's Astronauts entry. Sandblasting and spraying zinc. Most memorable moments and I feel very blessed for the opportunity to do so.
Werner von Braun stands by the five engines of the Saturn V Dynamic Test Vehicle on display at the U. Space & Rocket Center in Huntsville, Alabama c. 1969 each engine produced million pounds of thrust.
Back in 2006 we tried to catch Atlantis (STS-115) but it was scrubbed due to a lightning strike. However, I was able to meet Mike Mullane; a real live astronaut! I'm holding his book there. It was a great candid read and glimpse into what astronauts go through during their careers. Damn, I need to go on a diet - I don't look like that anymore. haha
