I'm a few days late (I was on vacation and just forgot it) but April 12th was the 25th anniversary of the first shuttle launch. As with Challenger I remember exactly where I was that day and wondered about you all as well.
I was there on the 10th sitting right in front of the VAB with some family friends who had been given a car pass by my dad. On the 12th when it actually took off I was across the river since we couldn't get over to the Cape. It seems just like yesterday to me. Hopefully we can get the space program back in gear as it has floundered a fair amount in the last few years.

Thanks Delta, It was a astonishing event!! My teacher brought a TV into the class room and we watched it live. At the time I didnt really grasp the enormity of the project , but now I really appreciate having seen it.
