We recently ran across a program by the National Guard Bureau—not recruiting— that offers free—that’s right, we said free—“heritage prints” that illustrate historic moments from Guard history. There are quite a few Air Guard prints, some as recent as the Air War over Kosovo (see thumbnail art). You can download a high-resolution version from the NGB Web site here or order the prints (there’s a limit) by regular mail (instructions can be found here.)
NASA, SpaceX, and United Launch Alliance are all preparing to launch their next-gen rockets from Florida’s Space Coast, two of them before the year is out. One is expected to liberate the U.S. launch enterprise from its reliance on Russian-made RD-180 engines, while all three rockets could eventually carry astronaut crews.
