Hart SastrowardoyoWhile I understand Atlantis will be displayed at KSC, I'm still puzzled as to why the fountain has that recording (particularly if Kennedy's words are inscribed; why not use a Kennedy recording of those words?)

I can picture someone rushing along hearing the Atlantis countdown, thinking they arrived just in time for a launch, then wondering, "How come I can't see it?"

Robert PearlmanI suspect the Atlantis launch is a first example of the multimedia "shows" the fountain can be programmed to display. I imagine they will change the audio to coincide with anniversary celebrations or other events, similar to other dynamic fountain displays at other theme parks.

I have watched that fountain off and on for a few days now. Most people ignore the recording, they just pose for pictures. I've yet to see anyone think this means a launch is imminent.

The 3-D NASA meatball seems to be slightly more popular for photos than the fountain.
