Space Shuttle Program Tribute Wall

Located along the transfer aisle in Kennedy Space Center's 52-story Vehicle Assembly Building (VAB), the Space Shuttle Program Tribute Wall displays the signatures of employees who have supported the shuttle throughout the last 30 years.

The wall has also been signed by the final astronaut crews of space shuttles Discovery and Endeavour.

NASA has now established a virtual tribute wall on its website and has invited the public to "sign" it.

Participants can add their name, as well as a short message. Visitors to the virtual wall can search for entries or view a world map showing the locations of those who signed.

The Virtual Wall is part of NASA's new website, The Space Shuttle Experience, which combines earlier projects such as Face in Space and Space Rock with new interactive games and features.

I have tried to put my name with a message three times today but it didn't work. Maybe there is something wrong with the site?

I tried leaving my message four times and it didn't work. I did everything it told me to do. Anybody else have a problem.

It's a bit temperamental but if you keep trying you get on eventually.

The character restrictions for the message are really annoying. The number of problems encountered so far seems to indicate that the Virtual Tribute Wall is a poorly-designed website.

I guess there is a general problem using Firefox as a browser. Using IE9 will work!

Tried this today. No success first time, but saw that a "pop-up" had been blocked. Second try was successful after clicking on the "Post to Wall" button twice and following the instructions in the character recognition box. 10 hits from U.K. so far.

Rob, how did you find you were #4 from Georgia? By the way, Firefox worked fine for me.

On the main Tribute Wall page, click 'View Map', (bottom icon) and proceed to U.S. to GA. Then roll over the state area to see the number.

All times are CT (US)
