America's forgotten space station and a mission tinged with urine, we salute you

Nice Work, El Reg - echo that

Having grown up during this timeframe, being the son of a pilot, loving all things aviation and space, and ending up as an engineer myself I thoroughly enjoyed this article.

Anyone who isn't in awe of the folks that rode rocket and have respect for the folks that worked to make it happen is missing out.

You see glimmers of it in SpaceX today, it is heart warming to see the excitement and cheering in the background.

I am not sure I would want a world populated only by engineers, but I love being around them and feel truly at home.

El Reg Redesign - leave your comment here.

Your redesign stinks, sorry, but it does

I can't open windows in another tab anymore which adds a batch of clicks. I used to be able to throw all the articles in tabs and then get to them as I wanted. Now I have to read the main page, choose an article, click back to the main page.

If it stays like this I won't be visiting anymore it takes way too much time.

Memo to Microsoft, RIM, Nokia: Quit copying Apple!

Hmm, copying Xerox desktop, using Linux, moving to intel processors

but of course they don't copy when they are in 2nd place

and didn't it help them get back on top

seems to be a flaw in the logic here
