Personally, I'm heartbroken. With the footage of the final shuttle launch, I almost cried. It is as if part of America has been taken away from us. Like the 4th of July being removed. The NASA Space Program represented imagination, Hope, and Scientific advancement. No more. I have always been fascinated with the space program, but in the mid 90's I realized just how much I loved it. A friend I worked with and I were watching the HBO mini-series 'From the Earth to the Moon' each Sunday night. Monday mornings we talked about the episode the night before in great detail. We became very good friends just from our love of the space program. I am going to purchase all the documentaries of the subject on dvd. -'For all Mankind' -'When We left Earth' -'In the Shadow of the Moon' I thought I would see a manned mission to Mars in my Lifetime, I guess I was wrong. For now I'm just going to look to the stars, and dream that one day we will go back.
