Happy Birthday! Truely amazing the way this site has come along from no where and really taken on a specific area of space news (space flight), shaken it up, made it accessable, broken the news and filled in all the missing gaps.

Great job from all concerned.

Congrats to everyone on the NSF team! You've put together a website for the people who really care (and do) spaceflight. Who needs headlines about the latest false-coulour image of some hot gas billions of miles away, when you get to find out all the nuts and bolts (literally!) of how us clever monkeys can put other clever monkeys in little metal tubes in space :)

As one of the first people here, the way this site has grown is nothing short of amazing. Very well done to all concerned.

I was here from the start too. About 20 members,  hardly any posting. Yet the first day I was here, there were two posts that had more info about Shuttles than I'd learned from two years on another forum. Now look at the place. We've got more NASA and Space Program people here than anywhere else and it's just getting bigger all the time. Awesome work.

Congrats Chris; this site, especially now with L2, is a phenomenon in its own league.
