Watching the Final Space Shuttle Landing

Just got done watching the shuttle land for the final time.
Some random thoughts:
Double sonic boom was both louder and quieter than I expected. I know that doesn’t make a lot of sense, but keep in mind I’m running on about 4 hours sleep.

Rolled by fast!

Bigger than I expected.

Wow, lots of media there, and more people than I expected.

Took no pictures or videos of actual landing – happened fast and I’m glad I just experienced it.

Bittersweet that the USA has a period where we don’t have the ability to get men into space.

Can’t believe how much money we’ll gladly spend to blow shit up, and how little in comparison we spend for amazing things like the space program. Space is the future of our race, we are getting there way too slowly.
