The Apollo "Rubber Room" at LC-39.

A bunker is located 40 feet beneath the launch pad. Dome-shaped, built on springs and shock absorbers, to be used in the event of an imminent Saturn V explosion with workers at the pad.

Pics from a KSC friend back in 2009.

Here's the legendary James Burke actually inside the Rubber Room!

That's good news.
If there really was intelligent life on other planets, we'd be sending them foreign aid.

Conservatives see George Orwell's "1984" as a cautionary tale.  Progressives view it as a "how to" manual.

My wife often says to me, "You are evil and must be destroyed." She may be right.

How many Democrats does it take to fix a problem?  No one knows because it's never happened.

What kind of testing is that? It was clearly a failure and they are lucky it did not blow up the whole tower with pieces spreading 10 miles around, killing hundred of birds. But it seems the pollution was clearly obvious, if that is not global warming and don't know what that is
