47. I'm calling Bullshit
Yea, I am glad we are done, because if California deserves a shuttle because most of the flights landed there and they were going to launch from there that's a very weak argument.
There is a lot of difference between design and engineering.The difference between the STS and any other spacecraft is the shuttle flies back into the atmosphere, it doesn't fall to earth like a bag of gravel. The difference is a little concept known as avionics and like it or not, a lot of that engineering came form WP-AFB in this little ole hick town of Dayton, Ohio.
Not to mention the fact that over 60 percent of the tax paying population are within a days drive to come to Dayton and gaze on the engineering marvel of the shuttle free of charge. Hell you can go see the Spruce Goose, how can we top that?
Just remember that if you ask an engineer what time it is, they tell you how to build a clock, designers draw the plans and builders build to the drawings.
I didn't make up the system, I just state the facts, so you can post all the condescending Bullshit you want and you wont change my mind, cause I might be a Dayton hick, but I'm as smart as you... Have a nice day! :)
