The future of NASA's space shuttle program, video.

David is proud of his ending, and small wonder, it's perfect timing.

I saw a Twitter post that said if you watch the NASA movie backwards, it's about a space agency that has no spaceflight capability, then does low-orbit flights, then lands on moon!

It's kinda hard for me not to be a little bummed out about the decommissioning of the space shuttle program.

In 1969 I was looking forward to getting a ticket on one of these in the not too distant future: http://youtu.be/b9TBYFvKeDE Now I'm not that confident that regularly scheduled, commercial space travel will happen in my lifetime.

Yeah, it's a bit depressing that the broad public needs a cold war to see value in exploring space.
