Yep, I’m gonna bang on about space again.
I’ve just watched the space shuttle Endeavour slide back onto terra firma remarkably well for a bird built to soar so high. Down from the darkness it swooped, and then it was all over. The final flight over so soon. Nineteen years over so soon. So young and grounded already. I shall never forget you, brave black and white bird. The light that burns twice as bright burns for half as long – and you have burned so very, very brightly, Ro…. er… Endeavour.
