Looks more like those engineers are taking a break and watching a movie off-screen or something tongue.gif

We do all tend to forget the critical importance of logistics. Not glamorous, of course, but BEYOND vital.

KrisK - there's no need to embed the images inline in the thread. Moreover, your link is to the hot-images catagory at KSC, so those images wont be in it in a day or three.

Far better to link the image info pages, so as to retain access to the higher resolution images and the appropriate credit and description..i.e.

http://mediaarchive.ksc.nasa.gov/detail.cfm?mediaid=54061
