that the shuttles were just the beginning of a whole new world open to us. I probably wasn't paying much attention, but I was shocked when I realized the shuttles would be retired without moving forward with something new.
You are welcome for the memories, of course. I don't think about them all the time, and I don't live in CA anymore, but when I read your post, I could hear the sonic booms and see the shuttle coming in over the dry lake beds and Edwards Air Force Base.
