I know I’m showing my age, but I remember crowding in a hallway with 200 or so grade school schoolmates watching in awe (on a single black and white TV — probably 17″ in screen size) as Apollo Mission astronauts lifted off from Cape Canaveral in Florida. About 5 or 6 years later, we then witnessed Neal Armstrong’s steps on the Moon.
Today the Shuttle Discovery made its final voyage to the Air & Space Museum here in DC. This truly awesome American success — from vision to funding to training, communication and full implementation of the program (in both good times bad) — deserves the full front page, evening news, Huffington Post, etc. treatment as a testimonial to our innovation, drive and vision as a country.
We’re now engaged in the next generation of space travel and exploration and this time it’s a $100b project with 14 other countries.
MRIS appreciates and congratulates all of the DC/Baltimore area residents and businesses that played a part in this tremendous success and we say thanks for a job very well done!
