If you read my previous post, you know that my ultimate impression of NASA was to be awed by the challenges they face and meet everyday.
But my impressions were not all good. The security theater was quite annoying.
We got just a glimpse of the shuttle landing: as a distant white speck. We did hear the two sonic booms, though. That was nice.
And this post illustrating how pork is spread around leaves a bad taste. They build the shuttle pieces in Utah and transport it by road to Florida where it is assembled. Wonder which genius thought of that ...
And of course, for all the impressive work that NASA does, their visitor center is too simplistic and backward-looking.
Of the four, NASA can't help the security and political environment they work under. They probably can't make shuttle landings more dramatic either. But surely, they can improve their visitors center!
