The shuttle Endeavour touched down this afternoon after all the worry about a three inch gash in the tiles of it’s underbelly. I watched with my heart in my throat as it made it threw re-entry. Frankly I disagreed with the decision not to patch the tile. What better opportunity to practice these skills when it’s not so necessary?
At least now a chapter can be closed at last. We have gotten a teacher up in space and back again, safely. I’m glad they decided to let her go up.
