Final Launch of the Space Shuttle Atlantis

I've said it before, I'll say it again. When a nation turns its back on its frontiers, it inevitably goes into decline. The Roman Empire is the best example. When Roman expansion ended, about the time the Empire was proclaimed, it was only a matter of time.
