The End of an Era

Discovery on the Cape Canaveral luanch pad - September 20th, 2010.

Goodbye Discovery Space Shuttle. Goodbye ALL space shuttles. Discovery will launch it's final journey on November 1. After that the shuttle Endeavour will launch its final run in February 2011 and then...no more...

After Endeavours final flight there will never be another space shuttle launch ever. So sad.

Discovery was the most used shuttle - a beloved workhorse of the NASA space program. Whether you believed we landed on the moon or not is irrelevant at this point as far as the shuttle program goes. The shuttle program when it first began heralded a new space age. No more obsolete rocket ships, no more touch and go splashdowns.

The Obama administration is unsure where to take NASA in the future and this article will in no way address the shortcomings and evil nature of the NASA program. It will only lament the end of an unfulfilled and hopeful era...
