The Last Shuttle Launch

No matter how many times I've seen it, I am always in awe of watching the Space Shuttle take off. Today was the last shuttle launch ever, and it was a great as ever.

It's pretty incredible to imagine that my kids (5 years old and 5 months old) will only really know about the Space Shuttle in historic terms, much as my generation did with the Apollo missions. I guess you can say that the Space Shuttle is the Gen-X space vehicle.

From Earth to space in ten minutes. What amazing times we live in!
