[i]Almost 8 years ago, the US Space and Rocket Center moved the original Skylab 1-g trainer (full of equipment) into a parking lot. It sat abandoned. For 6 months in 2006 volunteers worked to save Skylab. In December 2006 that worked was stopped by the USSRC and no additional efforts made to save Skylab.
In March of 2007 the temporary weather cover put in place by the volunteers was blown off one third of the low deck during a storm. Despite repeated requests to the curator and CEO of the US Space and Rocket Center, no effort has been made to pull the weather cover back in place. It's now been one year. This is blind neglect of a historic space artifact.
Help save Skylab by [URL=http://www.alabamainteractive.org/alabamainteractive_shell/Welcome.do?url=http://governor.alabama.gov/]writing to the Governor of Alabama[/URL]. Ask that he take efforts to save Skylab. One person with a ladder could put the weather cover on the lower deck in 10 min and help stop further damage until a full restoration can someday begin.
