Off Into History

As I looked at Atlantis make its approach to runway 15 at KSC this morning one can sense that the vehicle was landing into the dark of uncertainty. That said, as it rolled out and came to a wheel stop you have to grasp this monumentous event and clearly see that this is the dawn of a new beginning that will carry mankind into the next millenia of space exploration and travel.

Oh what wondrous stories they will tell!

To all the people that have worked on the Space Shuttle program over the course of the past 30 years, "Thank You" for your service to our country. God Speed; May his providence take care of you and yours.

The wakeup call that played; Fanfare for the Common Man was inspiring;

I believe; and most will disagree with me: but I say the Chinese will be the next biggie in space. They have the money and the backing.
Just wait and see folks.

I disagree! I believe it will the Americans, in partnership with either the Chinese or Europeans. The next big thing is going to cost too much with today's economy for 1 nation to take on the load by itself, anything beyond going back to the moon is going to be a joint effort of 2 or more countries.
