I am going to miss the space shuttle. In my opinion it was the coolest spaceship we have ever created. From the cargo bay-doors, to it looking like an airplane, to the awesome images of it in space, and each launch… all were awesome to behold.
It is hard to let go. My generation is the generation of the Space Shuttle. We have really never known life without it. I remember the first launch, watched the first accident take place (on TV in High School) and recently watched a documentary on the Shuttle’s mission to the Hubble Telescope for maintenance.
Other than the accidents, that I wish would not have happened… its been an exciting 30 years.
I wonder what the next space vehicle design will look like…
What do you think?
