    Nice job. I built turbo pumps for the Delta and Atlas rockets when I worked @ Rocketdyne.

    That's way cool! My dad worked on the NERVA program. He was bummed when that got canned due to "something" called a Space Shuttle. He went to the launch of 17 and came home sunburned. Those were the glory days.

    That's when America was at it greatest. I grow up in Titusville since 1958 and saw every launch from the cape and it was a very exciting time. My Dad retired after 36yrs out there. It's a national tragedy of what the space program has turned into. Catching rides with the Russians up to the ISS.
