One of my most vivid memories of youth is when the Space Shuttle Challenger exploded. I was in the sixth grade and we watched it live on TV. Shuttle launches were big news in 86.
Fast forward 19 years, I watched Space Shuttle Discovery safely land this morning, and it was just captivating TV. They gotta start showing these things on prime time.
Didn't they always say "The Eagle Has Landed?" I was pretty disappointed with "Discovery is Home".
