Space Shuttle Discovery final flight…

Canadarm

The end of an era.
I remember when I was in grade school or high school and class was stopped to watch the shuttle to be launched.
While in Korea, I even stopped teaching few university students to watch a Russian/Korean rocket be launched.
The students thought it was odd that class would be stopped for such an event.  For me it was fascinating watching another country involvement in a space program 🙂

I think what most Canadians think of when they think of NASA is the Canadarm.
