Shuttle Anxiety

Recommended Posts

I grew up with the space program

dragged in front of our

black'n'white to see

the first manned launch,

clear to the moon.

The Shuttles were special.

I watched the launches when I could

Loved the smooth landings

Then disaster

and another

This next shuttle goes up on my B-day

I find myself very tense


eating the K

to quit worrying

I'm in knots over this.

PTSD or Anx?

IMHO, the space program has been downhill since Apollo. It won't help at all to worry, but the shuttle is obviously dangerous and obsolete. (When I read about its development, I had decided it was going to be a dangerous machine, but had almost decided otherwise when the first crash happened.)

utterly trapped and


of the shuttle crews when

it goes bad

a claustrophobe
