Shuttle Atlantis landed safely
By was on Feb 19, 2008
Just watched the space shuttle Atlantis land - cool to see as always; nice safe landing. When I was a kid, I'd watch all the Apollo missions I was allowed to watch. It was fascinating to me. What happened to the space program? Where did it go? I rarely see anything about the space program on the news (other than literally the last minute of the landing).
I guess it's a bit like watching paint dry for most people - "look, there's no gravity here... I'm drinking gatorade that's floating around the capsule..."
