Space to Smithsonian: The shuttle's final journey
Space Shuttle Program Comes Full Circle For Space Fan
- ssesha, CNN iReport producer
As a child in middle school I visited the National Air and Space Museum and was excited to learn about the upcoming Space Shuttle program. Now, over 30 years and many triumphs and tragedies later I had a lump in my throat as I watched this beautiful piece of american history and ingenuity fly over my head for the last time. I look foward to taking my kids to see the Space Shuttle Discovery in its new home at the Udvar-Hazy Center. Please enjoy the video I took of this special event.
