On This Day

27 years ago today, at the young age of 8, I was attending a program for 'gifted' children at a place called the Talcott Mountain Science Center. I was taking an astronomy class and got to watch the first test flight of the Space Shuttle "Enterprise" as it was launched (somewhat) from the back of a 747. I remember them working hard to get a good tv signal and us eventually seeing a scratchy version of it on TV. At the time I thought it was one of the coolest things I'd ever seen, and it still ranks pretty high.
