My kids won't ever see a Space Shuttle launch, according to the current state of the space program. The last shuttle mission is slated for July 8, 2011. I do feel they will see a new phase or incarnation of the space program come into existence in their lifetime. I'm willing to bet they will bring their kids to the launch area and talk about the first model rocket they ever did, back home in Tyler Park.
