As a child, I watched the first Columbia launch with my family -- sitting in a room with a battered green carpet, watching a television that was Amazing because it had a remote control with three whole buttons. (I could barely press the buttons down for years; they took a fair amount of finger strength.) My brother adjusted the antenna by hand.

As an adult, I watched the last Atlantis launch with my brother -- sitting in the same room with the same battered green carpet, watching CNN over a fiberoptic connection and using a laptop via wifi and the Internet to get other camera views.

Sometimes we forget that we're living in the future.
