    Brilliant, very interesting, it is amazing now how far back shuttles go, you would never realise that so much time has passed over such a concept.

    Yeah, it's amazing how long the shuttle has been around. I remember watching the first test flight of the space shuttle Enterprise back in 1977 live on television.
