When Atlantis returns, it will be put on display at the Kennedy Space Center. Discovery and Endeavour already are retired and being prepped for museums in suburban Washington and Los Angeles. The original test shuttle Enterprise will be relocated from the Smithsonian to the Intrepid sea-air-space museum in NY. Challenger exploded in 1986 during lift off, Shuttle Columbia was lost in 2003 during reentry, Both shuttle crews have Memorials at Arlington National cemetary.
So Ends an era, to be replaced by… Nothing. John Glenn, Neil Armstrong and Jim Lovell have made their concerns known to the Obama administration. I personally think we should all add on to that, so Im writing some letters today to my representatives, I want us to continue into space. We should go back to the moon, and Mars, and someone should go check on poor Pluto while we are at it (still a planet in my book) and finally… I want my damn jetpack.
"Whatever you do, don´t stop writing, write only for yourself if that´s what you want". It might sound as nothing, but in a time in which I doubted so much about myself, it meant the world for me.
