Remembering what it was to be 10 and in awe of the future
There are a bunch of videos out there paying tribute to the end of the final flight of one of the most complicated pieces of technology ever conceived — the Space Shuttle.
Despite a childhood spent dreaming of becoming an astronaut, running around in my flight-suit PJs, wishing desperately for a future anywhere but planet Earth, having that video of the Challenger disaster burned into my memory, none of those tributes really did it for me.
Until this one. I hope you’ll agree.
