On Thursday the Space Shuttle Discovery launched for the final time. Odds are that if you saw it, you were watching it on television or online. But for a few lucky people flying out of Orlando, they got to see a view of the Space Shuttle launch that very few have ever gotten.
Maybe I’m just being a big, sappy nerd but I’m going to miss the Space Shuttle program. Sure, in an age where we’re struggling to find money in the federal budget some things have to go, but I’m a firm supporter in NASA and what they do. But you know, I think I could stomach the Space Shuttle program ending a little easier if NASA would update us on the James Webb Space Telescope.
