I dont think Kerry could have said it better! In todays society, we take for granted each mission that NASA completes. It was was not long ago when the first mission went up and the nation was proud of the outstanding accomplishment. After several launches, it became an every "day event". When the word "NASA" is heard, most people automatically think space exploration. In some cases this is true but there is far more to it then space exploration! Every day NASA continues to do research on new technology. This technology one day could provide the cure for many different kinds of devestating deseases such as cancer and AIDS. When we lost STS 107, we lost a crew that was putting their lives on the line to better the world. My heart and prayers go out to their families and friends.
