Celebrating the Shuttles

Celebration of the Shuttle

On July 20, 1969, when I was working the midnight to noon shift at a local gas station to earn money for my last year in college. The owner had brought in a small black and white TV so I could watch a historic event.  That was when a man put his first step on the moon.  From that day forward I was hooked on space.  It is hard to believe that the computer I am now typing on has more power than all the computers on that spacecraft.

The space shuttles were an important part of the NASA program so I want to celebrate them with this post.  These pictures were taken in 2012 during our last venture into Washington DC.
