From the Orlando Sentinel:
quote:
Instead of imagining what the U.S. space program was like in the 1960s, visitors to "Shadows of Canaveral" at capehistory.org can experience it firsthand.

...

The site allows visitors to tour the Cape through a reporter who has come to cover the launch. By clicking on his notebook, they can navigate a hotel room at the now-defunct Starlite motel in Cocoa Beach, visit NASA's Mission Control and see the press area.

Interesting site and certainly evokes some of that era.

Has potential and look toward seeing other videos student Alice Kramer may come up with.

In viewing this site again today, I couldn't help think that this format would make for a very interesting way to create a virtual space museum for collectors artifacts from around the world...

There are some great little features (like old home movies of John Glenn and von Braun) if you click around on some of the items... very nice site!

Thank you for visiting our site. Alice and the other students are doing a tremendous job. We are working out a few technical issues at the moment and new virtual clips will be uploaded shortly.

Please visit us again soon.

I can say from personal experience that Dr. Walters and her capable team have made a herculean effort to preserve our space heritage online when many of her skeptics felt that analog history was the best venue. She and her team have made US space history available to the world. We are fortunate that their passion shows in their work and will inspire the passion of many who thirst for more knowledge of such a noble endeavor as exploring space and the challenges that lie ahead.

God speed to Dr. Walters and the team! Thanks for "lighting this candle!"
