Space Shuttle Discovery

STS-121 – Shuttle Discovery (download video) As disappointed as I am with what NASA has done (or more accurately, hasn’t done) since the 80’s, there is still something awe inspiring about moving men and women into space, that I don’t believe will ever get old. I am someone that can still watch Apollo 13 over and over because of the triumph that it represents. Unfortunately, the bureaucracy at NASA and the lack of foresight and funding from Congress has relegated the one great United States Space Program to an after thought… A political liability… And probably many other things that don’t get revealed to the general public....
