Thanks! I can use all the encouragement I can get.

This is a fantastic idea. We've learned so much from building the shuttle, and we don't want to repeat the mistakes we made in losing so much of the apollo/saturn information. I would be glad to help this documentation project in any way I can.

I need help with understanding the checklist for the shuttle. I started with the APU at http://www.spaceshuttleguide.com/Checklists/apu2.htm . I think I have it right except for http://www.spaceshuttleguide.com/Checklists/apu2.htm#SMO_THRM_APU . If you could tell me if this is right, that would help a great deal.

What I've seen so far is already rather unique. Still many lines to fill. I follow with great interest.

Just finished the landing and declaration section of the Shuttle's systems. See the ‘how’ behind landing and stopping a space shuttle. http://www.spaceshuttleguide.com/system/landingdeceleration_system.htm

If you could, can you please look over the site for typos or broken links? That would help the most. Thanks!

We have too many students these days who are dropping out of school and many of them because they don't have any guidance or direction for their future...they think that school does not matter or why study math, English or science because I am never going to use it again anyway. This kind of project can help inspire this new generation of students and give them guidance and hope for their future...to show them what studying can help them achieve, encourage them to dream and achieve.

Just added a Search Engine. Now it searches the web if the information is not good enough.
