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 :)

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.

That really helps the site and if we're at this level after a year, then it's going to be a very exciting run towards when we head to the Moon.

(An honor to follow Tony T. as another 'old-timer!')
I think I found this site thru NASAWatch- so applauds to Kieth for (wow!) ten years-- and many congrats to Chris & staff for coming so far, so fast!
I'm always impressed with the quality of the people attracted here- of all ages and nations- and that we have not been overrun with the conspiracy nuts and pseudo-experts that seem to dominate many other space boards.  Regardless of age or experience or country- we are all here to share and most of all- to learn.
Great work all!

The site does give the appearance of being around longer than a year. Certainly has the perfect mix of techincal and fan interest for the space flight community.

Truly amazing growth.. there was a time when one could cover the posts on the site in one read... now that is a tough job..

Chris, and the NASASpaceFlight team congrats on a News site with one stop shopping for all space related info, in real time..

Quite Amazing..

Thanks too to all the members who have provided so ...so much insight..

Thank-you

There's a good point here. We have a three figure based of signed up forum members that are NASA etc. A percentage post on the forum, a percentage don't. I would urge those that don't post to read the confidentiality rules we adhere to, to put you at ease in case you are worried about posting.
