Touring Interesting and
One benefit of membership and participation in OASIS/NSS is the opportunity to visit some of the places where space development is being made. Below are pictures from a few of these tours. Facilities for which we do not have scanned pictures include the Jet Propolusion Laboratory, Rockwell DEI room (with a full scale shuttle mockup), and McDonnel Douglas DCX and space station facilities.
The X-33 project is to develop a prototype for a new, reusable, launch vehicle that can replace the current Space Shuttle fleet.

Microcosm allowed members to get a behind-the-scences look at the manufacturing of a commercial, sub-orbital, expendable launch vehicle, the Scorpius. A later generation of this vehicle should be able to send payloads into low earth orbit.
