I’ve been reading some interesting blog entries and articles on why certain cities were selected to get the orbiters and others weren’t. These are the most interesting ones I’ve read:
Wayne Hale – Why Houston Did Not Get A Shuttle – Former NASA Space Shuttle Program Manager and Flight Director
Txflygirl – aka Cindy – It’s more than a Space Shuttle – NASA worker at JSC
Michael Grabois – Don’t Blame NASA or Politics for an orbiter-less Houston – NASA worker at JSC
Joanna Molloy – New York Daily News – New York Deserves More than Just a “Fake” Shuttle – I’m including this not because I think it’s particularly good writing or reasoning, rather because it’s provoked a lot of conversation on the topic
If you come across particularly pieces of writing on the topic, please let me know, I’d love to post them.
