Space Shuttle in Tulsa, c.1980
We just finished watching the space shuttle return from space on CNN. I was reminded that sometime around 1980, NASA flew the space shuttle to Tulsa because workers there worked on the bay doors. It was a fascinating time to see that huge beast atop the Boeing 747. It looked so funny perched on top and we never thought it could ever fly. It is so amazing to think we can send something into space then let it land on tires on a runway.
