I am currently watching the coverage of Atlantis' final landing on NASA TV, the end of a 30 year era of amazing exploration, experiment and pride. She landed safely back at the Kennedy site which is the most important thing, but I watch with a sadness in my heart, I have grown up loving all things space related and the shuttle programme has been a huge part of that, to see it sitting on the runway, knowing it will never fly again brings a lump to my throat. Also for the team, many of which will be losing their jobs at the end of the day, having been a part of the greatest scientific achievement of recent times.

Tank you Atlantis, Discovery, Endeavour, Columbia, Challenger, Enterprise - thank you NASA.
