Al Pascua, 51, of Stevenson Ranch said he needs the shuttle from
the Metrolink station to get to his job at Disney, and he usually gets there in 10 to 15 minutes.
The ground transport services to and from Logan Airport being featured in the June 1992 program with The Delta Shuttle are: -- Nonstop Logan Express bus service from Braintree, across from the South Shore Plaza on Forbes Road, and from Framingham at Shoppers' World, just off Route 30; -- Shuttle van service from South Station on the Logan Link, which runs Monday through Friday; -- Seven minutes across Boston Harbor aboard the Airport Water Shuttle from
Rowes Wharf (connecting with free shuttle buses at the Logan dock).
It takes nearly one week and costs $750,000 to ferry a space shuttle from
California to Florida.
Considering the predicted high level of risk from this hazard even after these modifications are made, the space shuttle upgrades program should solicit additional upgrade proposals for protecting the shuttle from
meteoroids and orbital debris,'' the report said.
Workers also are installing lighter weight thermal protection system to replace some of the fragile tiles that protect the shuttle from
the heat of re-entry from space.
For two days cloudy skies over Florida prevented the shuttle from
landing at Kennedy Space Center, which would have saved NASA the $1 million it costs to move the shuttle coast-to-coast.
