RSM: Thanks for a great 30 years Discovery

Shuttle Discovery STS-133The space shuttle Discovery crew (STS 133) woke today to the sound of the Star Trek theme by Alexander Courage, and a monolog much like the opening to the Original Star Trek (OST) by none other than William Shatner.

You can see a video set to the audio here

This monolog was tailored to DIscovery’s 30 year mission to explore new science in the final frontier. It made me proud to be a Rocket Scientist, and to be part of something so much bigger than myself. It also made me sad at this ending, especially because there does not seem to be a beginning about to start behind it. I hope for our country and for my children, that the new beginning is as spectacular as the ending we are watching right now.

God speed Discovery. Thanks for a great 30 years.

I am a rocket scientist in my day job, and a mother of two all the time. I'm a pop culture addict and amateur artist in my spare time. My typical preferences tend toward sci-fi and fantasy genres but I love a good drama or comedy. Reading the blogs of fellow Lost fans over the years has motivated me to finally write my own.
