where does this distinction come from?[edit]

The only place I've been able to find the distinction between launch tower, supply tower, and service structure is in this Wikipedia article. Without references supporting this distinction, it appears to be original research. NASA often uses the term "launch tower" and "service tower" interchangeably in reference to what is more strictly defined as a supply tower on Wikipedia. Unless there are any objections, I'm going to rename supply tower to service structure and merge this article there as well.--RadioFan (talk) 19:15, 7 July 2010 (UTC)
