On Twitter, in addition to following my fellow Brigaders and various SFR authors and writing organizations, I also follow NASA and a group of astronauts and future astronauts. I picked this up on my Twitter feed today. Doesn't it seem there should have been a bit more made of this monumental anniversary in the media? Or am I alone in thinking our space program is grossly overlooked by the major news networks?
20 years ago today, Hubble was launched into space aboard Shuttle Discovery on STS-31. 20 years later, Discovery has just completed STS-131!
