There were cheers and tears as the Space Shuttle Endeavor flew over the Golden Gate Bridge yesterday in San Francisco. The Endeavor is the last of a fleet of Space Shuttles to be retired by NASA as government run exploration into space comes to an end. As I sat at home and watched the Endeavor fly over the Golden Gate Bridge secured to the top of a 747, tears came to my eyes.
There are millions of Americans who are upset that the US government has given up on space travel. However, with our current economy and run away government spending - something had to go and it appears that NASA's head was on the chopping block this time. I have always believe that money paid by the government was always a good investment when funneled toward space, but apparently the powers that be in Washington do not feel the same way.
