The first launch happened yesterday of the first new spacecraft for nearly 3 decades. Part of a programme that will see us back to the moon and beyond.
The most fabulous part of this is watching thomas' face when he sees this. He is very aware that history is being made right now in his lifetime and you can see the wonder in his eyes. He also checks the 'new horizons' probe daily which is going to Pluto and the kuiper belt and has a cd on board that bears his name :D
