Happy 25th Anniversary, Space Shuttle

Wed Apr 12, 2006 11:43 am

April 12 marks the 25th anniversary of the first development test flight of the Space Shuttle. I still remember watching the live coverage of Columbia gracefully gliding in to a landing in 1981 - hard to believe a quarter century has passed!
