Space Shuttle

Today being the last launch, in 5 minutes, I can remember back in the 70s when the Enterprise was first shown and that was the pinnacle of high tech. I thought how cool it would have been to be on a space flight and orbitted the earth.
I can still remember where I was when the Space Shuttle Challenger blew up on January 28, 1986. I was in Corvallis, going to Oregon State University, and how profoundly depressing it was to see it explode.
We can't dwell on the accidents, as they unfortunately will happen, we should dwell on the great successes that have occurred over the years.
Even with that I still want to go into space and hope that someday it will happen.
