On May 14, 2010, Space Shuttle Atlantis made is final flight. It was a bittersweet end to this shuttle’s excellent record to explore space with humans aboard. This was the only shuttle I watched go up in person after spending years watching them on television. The moment had me in tears as we witnessed history from Titusville, Florida as Atlantis took off from Cape Canaveral “The Cape” and rise up into the abyss.
Last July, we took a little ride to the entrance of Kennedy Space Center about 30 minutes before closing time. The guard was nice enough to let us drive in and take some photos. My sister & her family were here from Texas and we told the guard we were not here to visit the entire center and explained that they we would like to take some photos of Atlantis. For me, it was another moment that reminded me of the last flight and how special it was.
So happy to be back for squares in 2021!
