Wonder if it can fall over if the track is too muddy.

Hello, Damaris,

If you have a chance, could you consider my request on your Pegasus page? Thank you.

Maybe it's like a Segway, gyroscopes are keeping it standing up ;)

In reality the track is paved with a very thick layer of packed gravel that allows water to drain away and the platform is wide enough and slow enough to keep the Shuttle stable.

fotoguzzi,I have commented back on that posting. You can use the photos, but just cite them from NASA.

Wow. I never really understood just how big shuttles are. Thanks for sharing.
