Post Last Shuttle flight
I saw this one a day too late!:

When the space shuttle finally lands for the last time, everybody wear ape suits.

Pass it on.

I remember I had a company in San Jose that made the light that went on the end of the “Arm” (RMA). The robot arm was made in Canada. So as a NASA rep I was doing work for a Canada rep who was working for another US NASA rep. Before the idea was to be Global.
