Untitled[edit]

Info concerning external fuel tank. Can any one make sinthetic spider silk, or spider web that can be incorperated into the foam. Not only is it lite weight but also very strong. If not throughout entire foam, what about encasing the foam. Very good idea if possible to do. We are living in the beginning of the 21st century; let's think about what we can do! Make our children and grandchildren be awestruck by our achievments like we were by our forefathers. Mack D. Kraemer. mackraem@cox.net.

Static Time Phrase[edit]

The article said, "for the past thirty years...since September 5, 1973" The phrase "for the past thirty years" is clearly 7 years out of date, and each year grows one more year out of date. I rewrote the sentence to remove this problem. Nick Beeson (talk) 17:19, 12 October 2010 (UTC)

Video[edit]

File:S-IC-D hurricane damage at Michoud.ogv shows hurricane damage from Hurricane Betsy in 1965. It might be interesting. I have not included it today because there is lots more good video of Michoud in the Saturn V Quarterly Film Report series, of which I have several episodes. Perhaps I can string some clips together. -- ke4roh (talk) 03:21, 21 February 2011 (UTC)

Very cool, thanks! I've copied it to Wikimedia Commons, where it is in the Michoud Assembly Facility category as well as the Hurricane Betsy category. For free licensed or public domain media, please feel free to upload directly to Commons, thanks again. -- Infrogmation (talk) 18:59, 21 February 2011 (UTC)

Dead External Links[edit]

The hyperlinks to http://www.lockheedmartin.com/michoud/ are generating 404 errors. I'm unsure of the usual wikipedia protocol for hyperlinks that generate 404's. Are they typically removed? --71.207.245.221 (talk) 02:34, 10 April 2012 (UTC)
