Winding Down the Space Shuttle Program

Carolyn Collins Petersen has a nice blog post about some of her memories of the Space Shuttle Program.

As NASA winds down its space shuttle missions -- Endeavour launches on April 29 and Atlantis is scheduled for late June -- it's kind of hard to think that after those flights, there will be no direct access to space via NASA.

I'm hoping to go down to the Cape to see Endeavour's launch on Friday. So far, all systems are green for my trip and for the launch!
