It's not obvious, but there is a 'front page' to this site - Here
Hehe. Yeah, it's called the Front Page, but it really is one of the 'back alley's of the forum. I've long wondered why it held that status, but it seems intentional. If you go to http://www.unmannedspaceflight.com
, which one would expect to be the "front page," you find all of the main forum topics, resplendent with abundant replies and new topics of interest to our diverse membership.
On the Front Page, one will find some very interesting information, though not as much traffic. You need to make the extra effort to go around to the back door
to find this place. It seems it really should have a different name. Hey, this says it all. A lovely product of this forum (Steve Squyres Q'n'a - The Transcript) was featured here, but old comment #8 was the last reply in that summary thread. It deserved more praise than that, didn't it?

... I noticed a bunch of new members with Japanese sounding names on those threads.
This is kind of a different thought, but I always found it curious that we had so many excellent space enthusiasts from Japan in the Hayabusa threads, but none or few of them jumped off to explore other space topics here. A while ago, I searched for those members, and their posts on this forum, and noticed that they posted messages pretty much exclusively to the Hayabusa threads.
