Welcome Home Atlantis

Even since I was a kid, I’ve read books about space, watched the space shuttle, and absorbed absolutely everything that I could about the program. I wouldn’t have dreamed as a kid that I’d ever see the end. Dhruv and I both just watched Atlantis reenter and touch down not ten minutes ago. It was an absolutely sublime landing. This is just our heartfelt congrats to the STS135 crew, congrats to the folks at mission control for their final shuttle mission, and congrats to the ship that for so many years has sent mankind into space. We’ll all miss you. Goodnight, and to the future.
