Phoenix Lander Arrives at Mars
Back in the late 1980's I worked on the space station Freedom on-board network software. We always wondered why NASA didn't produce an cool illustrations of what there were building. Hollywood was making movies that looked great and we got nothing about the real world of space. It seemed to me that they were not doing a very effective job of marketing the space program to the public.
