She slipped the surly bonds of Earth to touch the face of God. We will miss you Endeavor.
I’ve always had a huge fascination with space since I was little. I was one of those kids who wanted Star Wars to really have happened and Star Trek to really be the future. I was fascinated by space…so big, so vast, so much out there, and yet, most of what we think we know about space is nothing but a guess.
I loved NASA and I loved growing up in Space City. It’s a crying shame NASA is on its way to becoming extinct and Texas couldn’t get one of the original shuttles to be retired here. NASA will be back one day, because we have nowhere to go but up.
