I'm more than a little surprised that there doesn't appear to be a thread about Nova already. :eek:

were you say it, dam there was no NOVA thread here
but we got one now ;D


NOVA start 1959 as "we fly to moon direct" big rocket
later as LOR and Saturn V was selected in 1961, NOVA was change into Heavy lift rocket with 1 million lb or 453 metric tons payload.
for advance manned mission to Moon or Mars, the studys were conduct until 1964
then NASA Administration stop all NOVA study in favor of advance Saturn V version.

I have no idea what possessed M. Wade to change the layout but ye Gods, what a pain in the backside to find anything now. And if you don't already know where to look forget about browsing to it. I liked the layout he had about 10 years ago.

Yes absolutely I could find stuff kind of intuitively before, not so good now.

He changed the layout a long time ago. I have no idea why he did it, but it dramatically lowered the readability of the site.

..."A long time ago" = "When the site got trollhammered", which wasn't *that* long ago. That being said, I and quite a few others have fired off e-mails to Mark asking about the layout change, and if he'd consider changing it back. I even offered to redesign the front page so that it was more navigatable, but *nobody's* managed to receive a reply from him so far. Mark's never been this "under the radar" in the past, so I'm sort of worried about him. Considering we're all now at the age where we're starting to drop like flies like poor Pat Flannery, I'm hoping Mark's health hasn't taken a turn for the worst.
