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.
