Space Shuttle

I guess I am sad that the space shuttle program is over. Our space program seems to have fizzled out. We have no goals, no direction. The future is in space exploration and it can’t be done just by robotic machines that we send out to distant planets. We are now dependent on the Russians to service the international space station, and we really need to continue to be involved in the space station and its experiments. So I feel sad that the space shuttle has come to an end without any other means of transportation available yet.

About mairedubhtx

I am a "youngish" grandmother of 15 year old twin granddaughter who has recently (is a year "recent"?) adopted Islam as my way of life, much to the consternation of my family. I love to read. I love to write. I am writing a book about my decision to revert, about my spiritual journey. I have another blog about stories from my youth, my parents, and grandparents. It's a blog so my OCD daughter will not be able to throw it out when I die. I suffer from depression and anxiety, for which I am treated, so my posts may be a bit dark at times. C'est la vie.

    I was saddened by the ending too. I’d like to see us continue to explore space in some way.
