How much do you know about Space Agencies?

This topic is for those who are interested in Satellites, Launch Vehicles, Space Agencies and Aerospace Engineering. Please come and talk about which part of aerospace engineering you are interested in or have information about.

My personal interest is about Launch Vehicles and airplane manufacturing technologies.

I worked on a production line for a number of years. I Didn't care too much for it; didn't learn that much either...
 
For a licensed mechanic, drilling holes and shooting rivets all day long is torture. Dealing with bureaucracy that is on par or if not worse than the military is even worse, especially when most didn't know anything about aviation... It's like a whole "nother world."
 
Sorry for the rant... just a little industry insight.
