Former Steelers QB Joshua Dobbs On Hand To Witness First Crewed Space Launch In US In Nearly A Decade

Right smack dab in the middle of one of the most divided moments in the recent history of our country, we, understandably, let slip by another that could have proven to be a great unifying moment. Over the weekend, the United States for the first time in very nearly a decade launched astronauts from our own soil up to the International Space Station (not like there’s anywhere else to go, of course).

After the demise of the space shuttle program, we have relied upon other space agencies to send our astronauts into outer space. We previously also relied upon them to send…well, everything up there.
