I hadn’t planned to do a second post today, particularly one with another long video. But this one, from the STS-135: A Final Tribute post over at the Lights in the Dark blog, literally brought tears to my eyes…
“… Four-and-a-half million pounds of hardware and humans, 135 launches, piercing the sky with fire and math. Each one bringing back more knowledge than when it left. The shuttles and their crews were truly marvels of engineering. No, they weren’t perfect. But they did what they did very well, and they enabled us to now be in the position to know how to make the next step. And you can’t put a price on that.”
I want ice water.
