Space to Smithsonian: The shuttle's final journey
Magical flight of Shuttle Discovery over Silver Spring, MD
Today, April 17th 2012, I was fortunate enough to witness the majestic flight of the Shuttle Discovery with my sweetheart. We both grew up watching the shuttle launches since they began and remembered aloud of our dreams of adventures to space. It was a magical experience reminiscing together as the shuttle seemed to float over the Washington, DC metro area.
