Thirty five years ago I was a 10 year old kid whose pop took him to Edwards AFB to watch the very first shuttle flight and landing - Enterprise's first free flight off the back of a 747 and landing under astronaut control. It was pretty cool.

Today I closed that chapter, with my 7 year old little girl, by watching the very last flight of a shuttle, over my office in Santa Ana. It too was pretty damn cool.

For me THAT's what all the fuss is about.

After today, you will never see one of these in flight again. Ever.
