Hey Chris, long time reader and lurker. Do you have anything on crew escape for shuttle in L2? I'm looking for the survival gear and escape procedures. Thank you.

Yes, including a big one stop document (166 pages) which is probably going to be everything you need on the request.

Been on for a week now and I have to say L2 is amazing. So happy I found this place!

Since joining L2 last year i've been amazed by the sheer scale of information available
covering not just current systems (vehicles etc), but those under development

Whilst I recognise that the barriers of entry to this market are generally considered prohibitive, and you couldn't build an Orbiter from the manuals on L2, I struggle to believe that the technology/concepts/IP is not of some commercial value (especially to those care little for patent law). I would be surprised if Boeing or Airbus had their own L2 sites providing such technical data. Of course the cost of entry is significantly lower.

To be clear, I am not suggesting that this site is facilitating such activities, I am just wow'd at the openness and free-flowing access to data and, most importantly, expertise.

Or am I missing something?

No they don't... Their information is all proprietary. There's no way they'd let people send them $10 a month to get the internal specs of the 380 :)

That's the heck of a promo! Amazed about the amount of videos, docs and images I recognized from the whole forum.

Works fine on the forums for me.

We appreciate all the good reviews and critiques we receive, and we would love all that we can get, too!  Thank you!

L2's not a joke, you get what you pay for (and more)!  There's so much that we haven't covered in this video, though.  L2 wouldn't fit into a four or five hour video, no joke!  Absolutely amazing.  I've been on it for about 9 months now, and I'm still not 1/4th of the way through it.

Been on L2 for over a year, and that video doesn't do it justice, but it's still well produced.

Did I read the ticker right?  "L2 now over 4,000 GB in size."  That's over 4 Terabytes!

I wouldn't be surprised.  L2 has more documents than you can read in a lifetime if you were to subscribe now.  It's amazing, really.

Oh, I'm already on L2. ;)  I know how many documents, videos, and overall content there is, and I agree, it's amazing.

I guess I just never realized it could be that much.  I mean 4 terabytes.  Wow!

Good promo video, but people like I was will be surprised when they actually join as L2 is a monster that no video will ever do justice. Never been so adicted to a site before like I am now with L2. Really is amazing.

Watched the video, got the subscription and it's worth every cent! Can't stop reading (and I will have stuff to read for this and the next few lifes ;) )...

Hi, I'm thinking of joining L2. I hear mentions of a tag cloud which is like a submenu on top of the L2 sections. Is it this, http://forum.nasaspaceflight.com/index.php?action=tags , as it seems to be missing things which must be on L2 from what I see in the article overviews?
