Today, 29 years ago, Columbia marked the beginning of one of the most endaring and exciting humankind space endeavours: The STS program.

Since that day, the Space Shuttle performed 131 flights, lost two crews on STS-51L and STS-107, but brought back home safely 129, deployed the Hubble, the Chandra X-ray telescope and tens of other satellites, performed experiments in space, mapped Earth (the SRTM, STS99 mission) and last, but probably the most important and visible achievement, made the most significant contribution to building, supplying and supporting the International Space Station - the biggest man-made structure in Space.

Here is a small reminder from that momentous occasion. Here is a small reminder of why it makes us proud keeping the flame going for STS:
