Welcome Home

I know I've been bitching a lot about NASA here at the Corner lately, but I got a lump in my throat as I was driving to work today and heard the words "Discovery is home' come out of my radio. Congratulations to the crew of Discovery, and to the thousands of men and women who made the mission a success.

I woke up the children early this morning to watch the landing. With a 6 yr old and 10 yr old I was expecting the question "daddy when will we go to space"? Imagine my surprise when they both left the room just before landing??? On the way to work we talked about this. When I was a kid, there was an assumption that one day all would have a chance to travel in space. It seems that neither of them talk about space with their friends. Even more, neither could remember their teachers talking about space.The past 10 years of NASA budget cuts is starting to catch up with us. For some reason our nation has stopped dreaming about space. For me this is more scary than Marius not putting money in the offering plate!
