First Shuttle Launch

First Shuttle Launch

I was 11 when the first shuttle launched. I skipped school to watch it on TV and it was the most amazing thing I have ever seen. I watched the launches as often as I could and when the program ended it broke my heart. Ever since I was little I have had dreams of exploring space like Capt. Kirk. I can't wait until we return to space.
