But folks younger than me, people around 35 and younger, they’ve known the Space Shuttle as their rocket their whole lives. This video is a tribute to all of them.
I’m much closer to 35 than I am to ‘younger’, and the shuttles were hugely important to me growing up. They influenced my reading habits, my hobbies, my grades in school, my tendency to treat rollercoasters as a poor kid’s Space Camp exercise…
I’m sad to see the program go, but proud to have been alive for all of it. I can’t wait to see what our planet comes up with next.
