Rutan would love that photo:  Two of his creations next to the Apollo 11 capsule in the Milestones of Flight Hall.  :)

Yep, I'd say that's some pretty good company.   :)

Voyager is just massive.  You don't really get a sense of scale until you stand underneath the thing.

Sorry guys, I'm only a month late.  Real life gets in the way sometimes.  ;)

Bertie, here's LM-2 for you.  The blue spectral coating seems quite evident in my pics, as well as through direct observation. Granted there is a generous mix of artificial and natural lighting in the building, but there's no reflection of sky here.




Shamelessly stolen a couple of these images for use in an argument with a hoax nut.. Many Thanks. :)
