I wonder if anyone else is awestruck by these great pictures click here let alone the technology.

I don't think you get a very good sense of perspective from a photo like this but just look how much space is in that building.

I am not sure if this post will be allowed
to run but there is a very tenuous link with computers. Where would spaceflight be without them ?

I heard that the first Apollo flight to the Moon got there and back on 32 Kilobytes of RAM !

Well yes, but all spacecraft must have at least one (computer that is, not tenuous link), so we'll let you off this time.

It wasn't running on Windows so 32Kb was plenty.

I liked the link as astronomy is one of my hobbies!
