I joined a week or so ago and I already know I wont leave this ever - L2 will come with next shuttle launch or when I get my vacation. This site is a gem, congratulations and thanks for the work!

I've been fascinated with the space program and especially the shuttle since I was a kid.  I stumbled on this site when I was searching for STS-114 news and have never looked back.  Oh and I enjoy the L2 coverage.  Thanks Chris B and all the others and keep up the good work!
I'll even excitedly look forward to "flags and footprints" and suborbital missions. Just fly...somewhere.

Wow.   It has been quite a trek already.   I would like to reiterate all of Chris' thanks to everyone who has helped make this site what it is, but most especially, I would like to say my own personal thanks to Chris himself; for creating this unique and truly wonderful online "home" for us all to share in.

I for one am raising a glass to Chris and everyone involved.   Here's to the next five years of NSF !!!

Thank you, Chris, for all the time and effort you put in here.  It's been quite a ride since I joined almost more than (wow) three years ago now (can't believe that!).  Here's to the next 5 years, 10 years, 20 years, and so on!

Thanks to all who help provide information and specials in L2, coverage around here, and just the whole gang for being a (mostly) civil ;) group.

On the one hand, I can't believe it has been 5 years: it seems like yesterday that I found this site by accident thinking it was a behind-the-scenes official NASA page, finding a unique ET-delivery article. On the other hand, I can't believe it's been only 5 years: it seems a lifelong habit logging in every morning and checking the discussions as if it was the newspaper (only a tad more interesting ;) )

It's priceless to be part of this community, with all the true professionals and insiders that are accessible but I wouldn't dream of even contacting, let alone discussing with, were it not for NSF. And I consider myself very fortunate to have found the site relatively quickly, enjoying it for as long as I could. Contributing to it (more in the past than currently, but such is life, and I still read everything every day!) has only been a pleasure and an honour.

Thank you Chris, for being such a dedicated, hard-working, professional and... why not, awesome journalist :D Your creation has taught me more in many respects than my academic studies for the last 5 years. Thanks also for the live and news contributors for their long hours in covering events and providing top-notch content.

Happy 5 years, NASASpaceFlight, looking forward to the many more that are ahead.

with a special mention to the MaxQ guys, who have taken on a life of their own via an excellent video arm who really should have their stuff on NTV.

Without this site Chris, there may never have been the inspiration to do any of what we do, so to you thanks, it is truly a team effort.

Happy birthday NSF, and to many many more  8)

I've said it before and I'll say it again, this is the best space community I've ever run across.  Leaps and bounds above the rest. 

Thanks for your support.

What he said ;D

Congrats folks :) May the site continue to flourish.

Wow... with such a strong user base and well developed site, I had no idea it was only 5 years old... many thanks and congrats!

Offline Space Pete

Well said, Chris!

This site is by far the most in-depth, detailed space site around. I love the fact that all of us on here get excited about things that most people donít (like a rack relocation Ė WOW)!!! ;D
Thanks to all who make this site possible, including admins, mods, sources, and just regular users like me.

Let's hope for another 5 years! We'll surely have a new launch vehicle by then, right? :D

Congratulations Chris, NSF.com and all the people contributing to this site.

I got curious about this site via the space.com forums a few years ago. I don't think I've ever gone back there. Long live NSF!
I always consider space to be the FIRST frontier.

Congratulations Chris and the entire team for a great 5 years.
The space enthusiast community cried out for such a site and you all made it a reality.
The superb coverage of the Hubble Repair in May of 2009 alone was worth the price of L2 admission.
Just looking forward to the day when one of the threads reads...Day 189 Mars Landing.

Congratulations and many thanks, Chris.

This site is the first place I go to for detailed space news and opinions. Compared to even the incredible space sites that existed before, NSF has really taken space reporting to another level. I thoroughly enjoy visiting NSF and long may she continue.

Thanks again, Chris.
