Friday, October 3, 2008. Twenty years ago today, the space shuttle Discovery landed, marking the successful conclusion of mission STS-26. I talk about that mission, which marked the return to flight after the loss of shuttle Columbia over two years before, and share my love for and memories of the space program.
This show also marks the second anniversary of "It Was 20 Years Ago Today." I want to thank everyone who has made this show possible, especially Joe Medina, who has always been there with research, technical help and motivation. Marc Rose composed and performs the theme music, and has also given technical help, as has Sam A. Mowry of the Willamette Radio Workshop. Thank you all so much!
I also want to thank all of you who take the time to download and listen to the show, whether it be every episode or just a few. Two years is nearly forever in the world of podcasting, but I hope to keep this show going for a long time still. The best is yet to come!
