ANNA FISHER IS ON THE RADAR! AND NOT HANGOVER III!
at least until I refresh my dash.
The Submarine Force Museum had a display about the now-sadly-retired NR-1 submarine, including its role in the Space Shuttle Challenger debris recovery operations. (I will write more about NR-1 tomorrow.)

I know where you can buy one. Though it has a sticker on it.
Oh man, what I wouldn’t give to have this re-issued so I could buy one.
Astronaut Francis “Dick” Scobee, May 19, 1939- January 28, 1986.
“We have whole planets to explore. We have new worlds to build. We have a Solar System to roam in. And if only a tiny fraction of the human race reaches out toward space, the work they do there will totally change the lives of all the billions of humans who remain on Earth…”
Happy Birthday to the late Dick Scobee, who would have turned 73 today.
*In addition to piloting the STS-41-C mission and becoming the only TFNG to command Challenger, Lt. Colonel Scobee was also one of only two NASA astronauts (with Gordon Fullerton) to pilot the Shuttle Carrier Aircraft, and was the 747’s pilot on Challenger’s delivery flight to KSC in 1982.
**Your humble webmaster of The F***ing New Guys is also honored to share May 19th as his birthday.
