My daughter will never be able to watch the space shuttle launch or land.
But looks like she will be able to watch astronauts ride rockets into space and return in a space capsule parachuting back to earth…
To me this kinda seems backwards .
First we launch rocked into space
Then we launch animals
Then we launch astronauts in capsules
Then the space shuttle comes along
Now we are back to capsules
Can’t help to wonder if animals will be NASA’s next bright idea…
Personally growing up I thought a base on the moon would be next, that or a manned mission to mars…
