  1. And now 8 years later, then pilot now commander, Doug Hurley, is on the first manned mission since sts-135 with Bob behnken. I'm glad to see that manned spaceflight has returned to the cape.

  2. Thirty years of an overhyped, overly expensive, dangerous, and underfunded spacecraft come to an end, making way for a new era of commercial spaceflight and newfound innovation throughout the decade.
