Shuttin' Down the 70s

With the exception of the fabulously expensive cockpit revamp they only ended up using half a dozen times, it's an opportunity to see what state-of-the-art looked like in 1979. They were fabulous achievements, but (IMO) not particularly successful vehicles. Yes, yes, I know why, and they're good reasons, mostly involving bad decisions and poor compromises. Me, I'm rooting for SpaceX!
