[i]Today, Hangar S is a gutted shadow of its former self.
There’s a wide-open concrete slab floor where Mercury and Gemini capsules were checked out.
Behind that lies an area NASA turned into a training facility, where engineers and technicians learned to operate and maintain the shuttle’s twin maneuvering engines and steering jets.
Climb the stairs on the south end of the building to the old Mercury crew quarters. NASA transformed the area into offices. Now it’s an abandoned mess.
There’s no telling where the astronaut’s sleeping quarters were located; where the kitchen and dining area were; where the medical facilities were or the suit-up room.
The only thing of historical value seems to be the memories.[/i]
