I just think it's interesting that on one hand, you make this big stand about Wikipedia being absolutely correct about the year 1979, and then when I find another Wikipedia link that again contradicts another one of your points, you simply claim it's incorrect.
Well by that reasoning, couldn't we also reason that they aren't correct about the 1979 date? You see where I'm going here.
I have no idea where you are going here. 1979 was a stsrt date. It could've been off by 10 years and they STILL would not have had SLC-6 ready so the POINT is that if it's even close, there's no way they had the capability in 1976. The first shuttle was going up at the end of calendar year 1986, although I know they hadn't come up with full solutions for some of the challenges of the location.
Dude, you can believe it all you want, I'm just telling you that they didn't have the capability out there at that point in time. You don't have to believe me, you don't have to believe wikipedia, you don't have to believe Richard Nixon, you don't have to believe the thousands of workers they laid off in 1969, you don't have to believe Henry Kissinger, you don't have to believe the citizens of Lompoc, etc. That's up to you, man. Just trying you give you some information you may have overlooked.
