Abandoned NASA projects (link roundup)

Gallery of abandoned NASA projects. Pictured is the X-33. Note the Skunk Works logo. Via.

And a few more links:

1. Bizarre - - the Chinese basketball league has a height limitation, and player Hu Guang might be a little too tall. You'd think finding out his height would be a simple matter. And you would be wrong. League officials "admitted they had 'limited ability and technique in measuring,'" and declared him eligible. So far, one team has forfeited a game after refusing to play in protest, and another game ended after violence including smashed cars. Via.

2. Heather Jansch makes driftwood horses and other sculptures. Via.

3. Interesting article about the "James Bond villain-like" new owner of SAAB.
