Sad times indeed. I attended all 6 of first Shuttle launhes. (Shooting Video for Sub Contractors and Foreign networks.) It was an exciting time. I
still have my Press credentials. They are priceless to me. Might post some if there is any interest.
I was at Press Site for STS-1. They moved the Press Site back about another mile for all subsequent launches due to noise/vibration etc. It was in a
word.......spectactular. (As you may recall the SRB was white on STS 1 only, before they added orange insulation.)
But the Shuttle has exceeded her prime and these are hard times.
It remains a remarkable vehicle and this is bittersweet.
