    I am responding to that line of the argument, which has already been posited, and adding that what can be stated quite factually, is the politics of placing of the Johnson Space Center in Texas. You can look it up as they say.
    Perhaps. But, maybe NYC can take the Buran instead since there's a lot of Russian immigrants there. :p

    We'll take that one too, I'm sure, should it become available. It'll be the ONLY one in the Western Hemisphere and look good alongside Enterprise.

    You do realize the only one in the world is nothing but a hunk of rubble right now, right? <.<

    Perriwen, what you need is some nice spotting out with Mike and Kenny! They will surely make you feel better ;-). I know I would certainly enjoy it

    Ouch, pain...........

    The MN contingent can not reschedule. Flights are canceled, hotel is cancelled, car is cancelled. It is going to be a crappy weekend.

    Well, maybe the next time they retire a fleet of space vehicles and fly it to NY.

    I'm crossing my fingers that at least do some fly-bys of the JSC on the way.

    The SCA is limited to trips of about 1000NM right? A Fuel stop in TX would make good sense. I'll be in school a few hours away and would make the trek to either Houston or NAS Fort Worth, hah.

    It's actually done fly bys at Ellington in the past when they were ferrying it from Edwards back to Kennedy.

    pardon my ignorance if I missed the post about it, but is there a possibility of a rain date of Tuesday? I hope to heck it is, I have a flight to Atlanta on Wednesday.
