Final Salute for the Space Shuttle Endeavor
'Years from now he will be able to look back and say he saw the last shuttle get carried to its final home,' he said. 'He may not understand it now, but we all participated in something impressive through the shuttle program - it was a pretty big deal. Maybe our space exploration will all turn into flights with a smaller footprint such as our Mars exploration but he will at least remember a time when our vehicles were so large they had to be transported on the back of a 747. Who knows - maybe he'll end up being an engineer in space exploration.'
