    I happen to live in the area, so I got some decent footage.

    This was an excellent development for the Space Program.

    This time I mean it when I say:

    Good job boys!

    I'm in my 30's. America left the moon before I was born and hasn't returned. It's good to see space become interesting again after 30 years of just going in circles in the space shuttle. I'm sure some important science has been conducted but it certainly hasn't done much to excite the imagination.
