STS-1, April 12, 1981, do you remember where you were?

29 years, I can hardly believe it.  I was in the MCC babysitting some new equipment.  Although it was just shadowing the ops systems, we staffed it before, during, and a short time afterward. That was SOP for ops systems and I suppose if it had hiccuped it would have been useful to see how long it took to resolve the issue.  It didn't hiccup and afterward the powers-that-be filed through to take a peek for themselves.
