Ol' Pad Rat Award
[click image to enlarge]
Space Today Online has been selected by "The Ol' Pad Rat" for the coveted and selective "Pad Rat Award for Launch-Quality Space Pages." The term Pad Rat has been used as a colloquial reference to those Cape Canaveral/Kennedy Space Center Launch Processing folks who exemplify exceptional devotion to Safety, Reliability and Quality in Launch Facility and Processing matters, Spacecraft Hardware, and to the Flight and Ground Support Personnel who work with and/or fly in The Manned Space Programs. Pad Rats spent so much time, usually above and beyond the required, at the Pad or other Processing facilities, that they were barely discernible from the other resident denizens. Some say they still haunt the premises. The omnipresent Ghost of a 1960's version of a Pad Rat appears at far left in the Award logo. Space Today Online pages exhibit a quality of positive Space Program promotion and an accuracy of presentation that "The Ol' Pad Rat" feels are deserving of the "Pad Rat" award.
