There seems to be a lot of "me and a plane" images here!

Yeah, here is a picture of me and my, uh, airplane...

no...I retired from the flying game many years ago...things I work with now are a lot safer than those darn planes!

Can't make out if that gator is happy or angry to see you!

If a gator could "feel", he would probably be happy...he knows that there is a big white bucket of chicken parts behind me and he will be fed very soon as part of the show.

Left to right: Joe Allen, DWT, Max Faget, yours truly, Burt Rutan, Bob Lovell, C.C. Johnson.  In the background: partially integrated Pegasus Flight 3 Stage 2 motor and Stage 1 assembly on the AIT (Assembly and Integration Trailer).  Location: NASA Dryden Pegasus Hangar.  Date: sometime in 1992?  My memory is fading...

At that meeting, C.C., Burt and I sketched a vary large, liquid-powered air launched manned booster system (the rocket was code-named "Maliboo", the carrier aircraft "Grasshopper"; Max and C.C. designed the spacecraft, a small, two-seat winged thing).  Burt wanted to put rocket engines on the carrier aircraft to increase its flight path angle and avoid a wing in the rocket.  I wanted a wing on the rocket and no rocket engines on the aircraft.  A substantially modified 1/4 to 1/3 scale version of Grasshopper flew many years later under the name "White Knight".

This is me with my two youngest boys a few years ago (they are 19 and 17 now, both taller than me :laugh:

I am a mechanical engineer, working with high pressure pumps, but have been a life long fan of the space program.

Here I am.  This is what it looks like following two weeks of shuttle (STS-120) coverage.  I'm sure a lot of you can relate.   ;)

Just now came across this--
Wow, Doc- you were the 'kid' in that group!  :)  This certainly IS a gathering of giants!
I believe C.C. Johnson turned 89 this year- making him the 'grand old man' of spacecraft design, and a real unsung hero of the entire Program.

Thanks for sharing!

Ha, that's brilliant.  :laugh: Must be a "it's my baby" thing, but there's something really awesome about seeing the site on people's computer screens, such as the above, and the image where Jim had it on his office PC at KSC (fell off my chair when I saw that).

Just a bit surreal, but cool, to see it "physically", because when I'm writing the articles and hitting publish, I see the read count go up, but that's just stats.

I know what you mean, Chris, because I've been in that spot myself.  That's exactly why I made sure I included it in the picture, rather than NASA TV or some other thing.  ;)

Maybe that can be the new thing here.  Rather than "people with their planes" (and I was so tempted to photoshop something with a paper airplane), it can be "people with their NSF."

Been around here for a few STS missions, figured I'd throw a pic or two up.  

The first one is me and the misses on our wedding day.  God I looked young, and it wasn't that many years ago

The second one is me at a FIRST Robotics Competition.  It's where engineers and companies team up with high school kids to build robots to compete against each other.  There actually devilishly complicated things, not little dinky kit robots you'd buy from Radio Shack.  One of the rather silly but fun parts is each team develops there own imagery, and here I am rocking our teams pirate look when coaching them on the field last year.
