Sierrafoot has begun a major renovation, which will proceed gradually through 2016.  Remaining contents in the Air and Space section are retained and are undergoing updates, other sections are being cleaned out.

The first updates will be in the X-15  History section, including a new X-15 adventure story for Major Robert M. White's world official altitude record flight for winged aircraft on July 17, 1962. Also, a new subsection is being added for notes by a docent (this author) at the Aerospace Museum of California. The home page will retain the news box below on the status of Folsom Lake, occasionally with other notes on the California drought.
