The Space Shuttle programme has been simply amazing, I imagine that it’ll take a special teacher to give todays children a feel for just how amazing but if you are of a certain age then just thinking about it is enough.
It’s hard to believe that it’s being retired now.
I also grew up with Star Trek and loved that as well – clearly not as impressive – especially those ‘special effects’ but to have been aware through the birth of the space age has been a real privilege.
Lovely to see these two things coming together here. This is the stuff that totally inspires me …..
