    How can it make its final landing when it was effectively being transported?

    That transporter with Columbia landed near where I worked many years ago. It`s an awesome sight.

    A sad state of affairs is this: A little boy who was asking advice on how to become an astronaut was told by an Ex-astronaut, `Study Russian.`

    Seriously, though, could they not have given the thing a wash before taking it for its final flight? :

    Sad. It was the last thing we could have national pride in. Now we have to rely on the Russians to get into space.

    THE RUSSIANS!

    I love how the pic makes the T-38 seem so big when it`s actually slightly larger than UPS truck!
