"I am so sick of the media dictating the terms of the narrative in this country. I am so sick of having to be apologetic for who I am. I’m so sick of people in middle American being called a fly over country or slop headed. …..The left pits people against each other. Divide and conquer is the strategy. I don’t want to live in that world, I don’t want to live in that world. I. Don’t. Want. To. Live. In. That. World. I am sick of living in that world. I live in that world. It is the exact opposite of being productive. ….The lefts goal is to silence those who disagree with them."

Launch of STS-30, May 4th, 1989

On May 4, 1989, the Space Shuttle Atlantis (STS-30) lifted off from Kennedy Space Center. The crew consisted of pilot Ronald J. Grabe, commander David M. Walker, and mission specialists Norman E. Thagard, Mary L. Cleave, and Mark C. Lee. The primary payload for the mission was the Magellan/Venus Radar mapper spacecraft and attached Inertial Upper Stage (IUS). The Magellan spacecraft, which arrived at Venus on August 10, 1990, collected radar images of 98 percent of the planet’s surface, with resolution 10 times better than that of the earlier Soviet Venera 15 and 16 missions. NASA’s Marshall Space Flight Center in Huntsville, Ala. held overall responsibility for the Space Shuttle’s external tanks, main engines, and solid rocket boosters.
