Nice!

I've watched Engineering Ground Zero numerous times.

But could they stop calling the site "Ground Zero". It's not a ramp leading into a pit anymore.

Maybe ZZ-II, but what do you think, there are not much threads in this section 7 years old.

NOVA: “Ground Zero Supertower” (PREMIERE) – Sept. 11 at 9pm (ET) on PBS (check local listings).

NOVA kicks off the fall season with a return to Ground Zero to witness the final chapter in an epic story of engineering, innovation, and the perseverance of the human spirit: the completion of One World Trade Center. “Ground Zero Supertower” examines the new skyscraper rising up 104 stories and 1,776 feet from the site where the Twin Towers once stood. In this update of NOVAąs Emmy-nominated special Engineering Ground Zero, which featured behind-the-scenes access to the struggles of the engineers and architects working at 1 WTC and the National September 11 Memorial and Museum, NOVA goes inside the construction of the towerąs final floors and the installation of its soaring, 800-ton spire and beacon. NOVA also goes underground to see another engineering marvel taking shape here: the construction of a multi-billion dollar museum that will house artifacts from 9/11. The greatest test is still to come, though: Will the final product be a fitting site for national remembrance?

The episode will showcase some special animations made by PMad. I used to keep contact with one member of the production team, last time we were discussing matters involving the possibility to showcase the hub project, but due to time limits it was trashed.

I've been here over 6 years and still under 200 posts... I guess quality over quantity.

I've always wondered why the memorial lights come from a few blocks away from the actual site. I think it would be much more nicer if the lights came from inside the memorial pools or around them or even on the perimeter of the pools by placing those light beam generators.

I thought I heard that once construction diminishes, they will move the lights to the plaza. Maybe now there are two many construction lights? Not sure. I have wonder why too.

MOON PROBE BLASTS OFF: NASA's LADEE spacecraft is headed toward the Moon after launching on a Minataur V rocket Friday night from NASA's Wallops Flight Facility in Virginia. The launch, which occured at 11:27 pm EDT, was widely visible along the US east coast from Maine to the Carolinas. Ben Cooper on took this picture of the rocket flying over the Empire State Building in New York:

Taken by Ben Cooper on September 6, 2013


"As seen from the Top of Rockefeller Center, LADEE launches to the moon aboard Orbital Sciences Minotaur V rocket," says Cooper. "[It soared] over the blue-and-green Empire State Building, lit for the US Open of tennis."

The launch kicks off LADEE's mission to investigate the Moon's atmosphere. Yes, the "airless Moon" has an atmosphere. It is ten thousand billion times thinner than Earth's, but nevertheless there. Apollo astronauts actually saw it with their own eyes.

LADEE, short for "Lunar Atmosphere and Dust Environment Explorer," will circle the Moon for 100 days to assay the lunar atmosphere. Instruments onboard the spacecraft will look for signs of humidity, electrified dust, and atoms hopping across the lunar surface. A NASA video about LADEE previews the mission.
