Taking full advantage of my short vacation, I went down to see Endeavour at the California Science Center yesterday. Gorgeous spacecraft, and such a privilege to see it so close you could almost touch it.
I'm more emotional about the Shuttle than makes sense. Growing up in Florida, the Shuttle was just a background fact -- this thing you could see rocketing into space now and then. No big deal. But somehow the Shuttle has come to mean a lot to me; standing in its presence was almost overwhelming.
Thanks for everything, beautiful.
