Link of the day: How to land a Space Shuttle in Berlin (BBC Dimensions)

It is reported that the NASA plans to retire their famous Space Shuttles. Too old, too expensive. Today, for the 39th and very last time a shuttle should head to the international space station ISS. If it’s possible now. Because, due to bad weather, the start has been postponed a few times. So retirement has to wait a bit. And before it finally happens this link appears to be the ultimate choice to check some opportunities.

The BBC (the famous British Broadcasting Company) has a faboulus way to make statistics visible. The website is called “Dimensions“. For a start we checked out, how the Shuttle runway could be placed in Germany’s capital Berlin. Around the Brandenburg Gate maybe.

Many more options there – east and west of the Atlantic. Like “If St Peter’s Basilica and Square were at…” or “If the New Orleans Mardi Gras Rex parade left from…” Great new world…
