Save the LUT!

Slashdot linked up this article noting NASA is taking steps to scrap the last remaining Launch Umbilical Tower (LUT) remaining from the Apollo era. This was the tall orange thing that was part of the mobile launcher, one of the bits my dad was in charge of all those years ago. It's sad to think it'll be heading toward the scrap heap, but at least NASA is giving a nascent non-profit a shot at preserving it.

If they do scrap it I hope they chop up the bits and sell them on e-bay. I'd definitely pick up a chunk or three.
