The beginning of the end...

Rollover of Atlantis for STS-135 and the final flight of the Shuttle Program.

A geek moment for me. Growing up I used to read Aviation Week and Space Technology religiously, and haunted the local library every week until I got to read it. During the rollout I fell into a conversation with this gent, and was humbled when I found out who I was talking with. A legend in aviation reporting and long time AW&ST editor, Mr. Craig Covault.

And we thank you for all your years of hard work.

After STS-132 and what was supposed to be Atlantis's final flight the STS-132 astronauts inked a wish inside a storage locker. Glad to see it came true.
