Closeout Crew Tribute to the Shuttle Program

The most touching tribute I’ve seen to the Space Shuttle Program thus far has been from the Closeout crew. These are the guys who close out the orbiter and get her and her crew ready for launch. They do Important work like closing and sealing the hatch, strapping the astronauts in, pressurizing the cabin and many other unsung but vital tasks. In the tradition of Guenter Wendt, these people get our spacecraft ready to fly. After they completed their tasks today, they took time to thank us for letting them and their co-workers across the program work on the Shuttle. That’s just plain awesome!
