The end of an era.

This is a completely personal note. Today was the final flight of the Space Shuttle Discovery from Florida to Washington, DC. I have not been a fan of the space shuttle program. I am very much so looking forward to an era of commercial space flight. An era that should be starting on April 30th. All of that said, I grew up with the space shuttle program and it is humbling to see this line of spacecraft be shuffled off into museums. A reminder that all things come to an end. Now, I have no plans to shuffle off into a museum or off this mortal coil, but it is hard to let go of something that has been such a part of my life. So long Discovery, maybe I’ll make it in to see you at the museum.
