April 1981…we had a new President named Reagan, the hostages were finally freed, and bold new era in space exploration had begun…an era brimming with hope!
July 2011…feh, not so much.
Photo staged? Who cares! It’s a great shot.
Wow. That’s something nice to treasure.
I can remember when STS-1 landed at Edwards AFB. American flags everywhere, people proud of their country and its achievements. The American-hating libtards were in a foul mood.
Now, they’re running the show…

Nice pictures. Overly obvious and overtly opportunistic, but nice.
STS-1; I was a Sgt in the Marines leading an Electronics Maint Workcenter; I cut the crew loose an hour early so we could all go watch history being made on TV with the Shuttle launch.

That there be history.
His t-shirt has held up well.
Obviously doesnt have the union label
Very nice. The kid was pretty high-tech to have a video camera back then, even though it’s the size of a toaster.
Wow, what a GREAT picture. Pure Americana!
“Overly obvious and overtly opportunistic”.
Please Jenny I find it neither. It’s just a plain old ‘now and then’ photo.
What a great experience for a father and son to share!
It’s great whether staged or not. This is true history, but not with a happy ending. Think about it. What drove this country forward in the 60′s and 70′s? Maybe we wouldn’t be here perusing the internet if not for the science back then.

I love this picture, who cares if it’s staged? I think it’s a great banner for the US. And over a million people went to see this last launch, I think that was great, too.
