That's awesome! We can see the shuttle take off from our house. :)

Oh wow! That is pretty cool!

It looks really awesome at night, but it's exciting any time.

Very cool, but where are they going to put it?

I can't find the article :(

 

But that's still pretty cool!

This is really special--Thanks for the info. Gina :)

Last flight of the shuttle!  It seems fitting.  Hope the unfurling makes tv coverage!

That's so awesome and exciting! :D

That's really cool but I'm like Pat where are they going to put it?

They will probably just take a pic of it in space like they did for the Polar Bear Plunge...they sent a sticker up in space with one of the astronauts and they took a pic with it while space-walking...was a very cool pic, but still. It's not like they can put it on the moon...or can they!

that is so cool... i have always wanted to be an astronaut but diabetes made that dream sort of impossible but that means a lot. its like part of us is up there too<3
