I saw the brand new Endeavor fly (piggybacked) right overhead as it was taking off from the Melbourne, Fl. airport (there was / is a Boeing facility
there), the day they delivered it to NASA..... Awesome sight!
I saw the smoke plumes from the Challenger disaster all the way down in West Palm Beach.
My most cherished memory of the shuttle program was a Columbia night launch on NASA property, something nobody else will ever be able to experience
R.I.P. shuttle program, And thanks to all the astronauts who gave their lives in the pursuit of knowledge ....
