USA United Space Alliance is truly a unique web site. During the twenty minutes
I spent looking through the materials, I suddenly became interested in certain
spaceship activities. was a very informative site.
With my limited knowledge to space issues, I can only assume that this site is
accurately depicting space shuttle information. If I had to do research based
on models, and information about spaceships, I would readily make use of the
information this web site has to offer. When used appropriately this site will
direct users to information of the different space shuttles, and space centers.
The best part of the site undoubtedly was the virtual tours that it offered.
You could control the camera with the mouse and zoom in and out, but use caution
it made me dizzy. First time users will be able to navigate this site fairly
easily, as I found nothing too difficult to find.
