Where I work.
These are pictures of the building that six others and myself were hired to design test fixtures for ie: bridges, walkways, reaction frames, mast climbers, stairs and various platforms. NASA is in the process of designing the Ares 1, which is the next generation launch vehicle. It will be placed in the building above in the coming years and the test fixtures we are designing currently in the group I work with will be used to enable personnel the ability to work on the vehicle at various locations. The building is 400ft tall and the vehicle is 340ft tall. The last picture is one I took last year off the top of the building looking out over Marshall Space Flight Center which is located on Redstone Arsenal. I am located in the East Test Area on Marshall Space flight Center. So in a nut shell that is what I have and will be working on for the next several years "Lord willing".
