Good bye to the world's most dangerous delivery vehicle.

Low earth orbit: the final frontier. These were the voyages of the space shuttle. Its thirty-year mission: to explore the easiest to reach part of its home planet's orbit, to launch defective satellites and return repeatedly to fix them, to boldly go where many men, apes and canines have gone before.

hi2pi-"after the moon landings there was a 9 year break before the first shuttle."

How soon we forget Pioneer 10 (72), Skylab (73), Apollo-Soyuz (75), Viking I (75), Voyager 2 (77), to name a few.

My father worked on Apollo 11 & 12. I remember well the Earth rumbling when they tested the rocket engines in Huntsville, AL.

I'm glad he passed before he could see this happening today.

And this, people, is what a state gets when it votes for McCain rather than The One.

The Astronaut is dead.
Long Live the Cosmonaut.

If Americans cannot see the direction this country is going, we are all blind. Well America had a good 235 year run and about 50-55 year as a superpower.

And how many of you guys are aware that there is no future plan to send anymore people into space?

They said that they are going to send probes and satelites only for a while now... they didn't say how long it will be untill they send someone else into space.

No more human spaceflight = No more astronauts.

Who's going to be the next to go into space you say. Well rich people obviously.

Commercial Orbital Transportation Services.

The announcer sounds like he's trying not to cry. I think I'm right there with him on that. My dad was a NASA aerospace engineer when I was born, he worked on the Titan missile retrofit project for the Apollo space missions. The shuttles were in development when he left NASA. I grew up to the heartbeat of the Space program, particularly the Shuttle Program, and I feel as if a major part of this country's greatness has just ended.
