|Alan Shephard in Freedom 7 - May 5, 1961|
|Space Shuttle Endeavour - May 16, 2011|
Like hundreds of millions of kids, I was hooked on the space race from that time on. So this morning, I stayed home and missed the beginning of a meeting so I could watch the final launch of space shuttle Endeavour, as she lifted off from Cape Kennedy on STS-134.
I may have said a little said a little prayer.
