Something you probably didn't encounter during Edwards landings...

The first shuttle landing at KSC was celebrated at the Visitor Complex.

Let me end this with a quote taken from Ben Evans' book "Space Shuttle Challenger - Ten Journeys Into the Unknown" (p.112), describing the situation after two satellites and a target balloon were lost in space:

"Added Joe Allen: They were now zero for three in satellite deployments! I've never asked him, but I wondered what Bruce was thinking at that point, because he was going to be the fourth satellite!" ;D

Actually nothing was lost - they even found a solution for Westar VI and Palapa B-2. But that's another story...
