Goodbye Shuttle and Space
There is nothing like a Shuttle launch! The power, the sound, the beauty. It's one of the things I miss about Florida. Friday mornings last launch was a sad day for me and science. After 30 years and 135 missions, the Shuttle program is coming to an end with no replacement in site...just layoffs at NASA.
As a pilot and kid that dreamed of being an astronaut and has been to Kennedy Space Center more times than one can count, this is a huge blow to our future. What do kids have to dream of...the Russian space program?
So much for science, and our country just keeps falling behind the rest of the world.
