The Space Shuttle Atlantis reached its final destination on Friday – ‘Spaceport USA’ – following a 10 mile trek from the Vertical Assembly Building (VAB) at the Kennedy Space Center in Florida.
Bittersweet to see these marvels of flight and engineering de-commissioned and retired. Countless memories echo through this spaceship…and the hope of even greater wonders to come…
Thank you, NASA for inspiring a generation of dreamers.
Thank you to everyone that ever worked on, in, and around these incredible machines. Blastoff like a rocket? Orbit the Earth like a Spaceship? Land like a glider? That’s pretty crazy…pretty bold…pretty audacious! Thank you for making it happen in our lifetime, right before our eyes.
The dreams that we dare to dream really do come true…
