I think this is a missed opportunity. They really should have added Tron effects on their jumpsuits. If you’re going to imitate something, go all the way.
Actually, you know what would be really cool? A Tron shuttle retrospective.

I love these posters.
I wonder if they put them on billboards, would more people get interested in the space program?
