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

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!

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

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.`

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