Space shuttle: the beginning of the end

“The future is not a result of choices among alternative paths offered by the present, but a place that is created--created first in the mind and will, created next in activity. The future is not some place we are going to, but one we are creating.” ~ John Schaar, scholar and political theorist who has published articles on patriotism, equality and authority.

Robert Hood says: I find myself surprisingly, deeply sad over the end of NASA’s shuttle program. I’ve always viewed the shuttle as part of what defined “the future”. I even had a shuttle poster on the wall of my bedroom all through my high school years. Seeing the program end reminds me that nothing lasts forever, and the future is just an idea.
