Discovery Retires


by
Armand Cabrera

My friend Gary and I went and  watched the Discovery land at Dulles Airport  today. We were lucky and were right under the flight path for three fly overs. It landed on the third pass and we had a great view on an overpass near the end of the runway. I was happy to see so many people turn out for the event. It will be interesting to see how the privatization of space will work now going forward with companies like SpaceX .

Wonderful to see but sad. A reporter there asked one of the astronauts what advice she had for a young boy who wanted to follow that profession. Her answer "Learn to speak Russian"
