The Space Shuttle Atlantis rides off into the sunset (photo from 2006, courtesy of NASA).
Two weeks before I was born, in April, 1981, the first Space Shuttle mission went into orbit over Cape Canaveral.
Now, thirty years later, the Space Shuttle will soon make its final landing, never to rise again. Earthbound, at the beginning of my thirties, I'm left with a strange feelings of nostalgia for my old childhood expectations of the twenty-first century.
I feel like I've outlived the future.
