Atlantis is Home.... Safe and Sound


Good Morning... The space shuttle has returned for the last time. Welcome home. Atlantis.

I got up in time to listen for the sonic booms as I always do, but this time, in addition to the shivers I experienced from feeling the windows rattle, I found I had leaky eyes too. For so many years, I've watched every launch and anticipated every return. It just doesn't seem right that this is the last one.

I will look forward to what comes next. The creativity of space will continue to draw us in.

Thanks for sharing...I hope we (as a nation) stay creative in space! What an irony that we will be paying the very people we were pitted agaist in the "space race" to shuttle our people to and fro. Missed the boon up here in the mtns....with you in spirit!
