Space exploration unites us. It feeds the human spirit of adventure, and displays the values of courage and curiosity that we want to see in our fellow man. Saturday’s Launch America of the spacecraft Crew Dragon was a joyous event for our country.
The Falcon 9 burned upward. Its rocket fire refreshed the thirsty soul yearning to know “what’s out there.” And for a time, it washed away the fear and uncertainty in our world.
As we watched Astronauts Behnken and Hurley escape the atmosphere we witnessed humans overcoming the physical boundaries of our planet. It gave us hope that we can overcome the boundaries on our own Earthly paths.
My favorite part of the Launch America experience — What was once a dream, is now a reality. “With extra effort and dedication to accomplishment — all things are possible.” Dad said.
The Dragon spacecraft, christened Endeavour by the Crew, docked to the International Space Station. Bob Behnken and Doug Hurley joined the ISS team of American Chris Cassidy, and Russians Ivan Vagner and Anatoly Ivanishin. Together, they will “endeavour” to challenge what we believe, to discover new solutions, to expand our knowledge of the universe.
Nobody hates space exploration. Thank you NASA, SpaceX, all the Americans, the citizens of the World who bring the celestial wonders to our earthly home.
