Noted in the undocking article, but I said I'd write a standalone, which was facilitated by Neptec's release and the undocking results for TriDAR:

The headline's a bit "I don't think Atlantis actually turned up in Dulles and presented a gift box" but I wanted to get across the nice angle of the way the orbiters have helped the commercial vehicles.

Very enjoyable read Chris.

Will be following Neptec's Orbital launches with interest  ;)
Remembering those who made the ultimate sacrifice for our rights & freedoms, and for those injured, visible or otherwise, in that fight.
