What a day it was. It brought up some wonderful personal memories for Dr. Phil Plait and this cool post from Cheryl Harness.

I remember my own father taking us to a shuttle launch in the 80s and the Marshall Center in Huntsville. My brother and I ate that stuff right up and I've been a NASA enthusiast ever since.

They're showing some cool footage over at NASA's site. All the goods. Go and geek out for awhile and inspire your kids to continue the dream.

(Of course there's still those nutty moon hoax loonies. Check out the video Skeptidad has at the bottom of this post of the great Buzz Aldrin handling one of these goofballs in a way I can't endorse but certainly understand! I admit I cheered.)
