John, I totally agree with where you're coming from.

But having worked with engineers and scientists for some time, and with Formtek having been part of Lockheed Martin until just a few years ago, I can't help but comment that you can't always read an engineer's passion on his face, although I have to admit that the guys in this photo don't look particularly energized.

It's also interesting that the new vehicle will be called Orion, the same name as Formtek's content repository.

As for the loss of the Saturn V documents, there was a space.com ( http://www.space.com/news/spacehistory/saturn_five_000313.html ) article of Lou Dobbs vintage that claims this isn't true. But the same theme echoes with the recent disturbing news ( http://www.forbes.com/business/energy/feeds/ap/2006/08/15/ap2952087.html ) about NASA's loss of Moon Landing tapes. While these projects pre-date Content Management as we know it now, not having captured this data in some sort of repository is a shame.
