It's impact on history is not realized by this generation of so called social issues (as far politically as I will go). The real things and accomplisments are lost in time. I live near a few astronauts (under ten miles from Langley) and they are some of the most interesting people that I know. They are my driving force behind acquiring my degree. Being in the Hampton Roads area History is an integral apart of society and public private education. I have seen launches at Wallops and watched launches from Pearl Young center at Langley with current engineers and retired from STS-1; all the way to one guy who was Mercury. Good for you being able to see it. I remember one time when I was young (10 maybe?) when Atlantis (see user title and avatar and quote) was being piggy backed they touched down in Hampton. Amazing site, make sure you see it as there is nothing like it!
