Salutes

I salute those we have lost in a most worthy endeavor. Perhaps THE most worthy endeavor. In the space program, despite its shortcomings, my pride really did rest with my nation. It still does.

Prayers for the Columbia crew.

I was in Best Buy near the TV aisle when I heard the news on the TV.

Opportunity comes from misfortune. We know that we have needed a replacement orbiter for years. The current fleet is aging and is now permanently suspect. If we are to continue manned space flight, which I think is a given, we must finally pony up the money and the political will to fund a next generation orbiter.
