An Open Letter To Space Shuttle Atlantis

by Amy Lindorff

Dear Atlantis,

Today is the 42nd anniversary of the moon landing. You never went to the moon and that’s okay I guess, but wouldn’t it have been fun? You will never get the chance because you are on your last mission. Tomorrow you come home and the shuttle program is done. Gene Cernan is not happy about this. And it really is sad. I played with space shuttle toys as a small child and Erin and I have major space travel plans. I’ve even written short stories about it. Hopefully something new and exciting will come along soon. For now, this article sums thing up nicely and says goodbye.

Love, Amy
