I was working at a nuclear power plant at the time, and stayed home to watch the launch. The boss was pissed, but what could he do?

In later years, I hired on with the Shuttle program. On slow nights in the firing room, I browsed through all the console logs from that day which were kept in Firing Room #1. That was some interesting reading. I wonder what ever happened to all those log books.

It was before my time, but I heard stories about how the launch team had a huge party at a convenience store (Can't remember the name) just South of the gate on SR3. There were so many people celebrating that they blocked the road. What a fantastic day!

Great video, thanks for sharing! I will always love the shuttle! Building the new Lego set right now in fact.

It had it's flaws, but what a machine it was!!!

Even if you're not a Rush fan worth watching.

I went to Edwards to watch the landing. They kept the public so far away it was tough to actually see it. Got lousy pictures and drove the 8 hours home.
