Here’s an article I wrote for this week’s edition of The Montclair Times about the end of NASA’s space shuttle program.

I interview Dr. Charles Liu, an associate at the Rose Center for Earth and Space in New York; Tim Lynch, a physics and astronomy teacher at The Montclair Kimberley Academy in Montclair; and Patricia D’Emidio, a math professor at Montclair State University in Montclair.

Both D’Emidio and Lynch have attended shuttle launches, and Liu offers some fascinating insights including this one, “I don’t have anything negative to say about the shuttle program itself. It was a really great success. But it really is time. I don’t see any 30-year-old cars on the road anymore,” Liu said.

Makes sense!
