>>[background noise] I'd like to thank everyone there today for supporting the space program
and helping us farther the next generation with explorers
and without your efforts we wouldn't have the wonderful space program we have today.
Thanks a lot.
>>I'd like to give a shout out to my fellow mission operations team members,
all the fantastic folks that worked on the shuttle program
and especially the SIM Supes [phonetic] and team leads and crew managers that did all
of the training for our crews and our flight controllers and made all
of those shuttle missions so wildly successful so fantastic job and thank you for all the work
and effort you put into it and wish you all the best.
>>Over my 30 plus years of association with human space flight
and the space shuttle program, I would just like to say thank you to those thousands
and thousands of people across the country and in the Houston area that had a part
in making the shuttle program possible.
Without your efforts we wouldn't have been able to do the fantastic things that we did
with the space shuttle during those 30 years and again, thank you very much
for participating and thank you for being here.
>>Hey everybody, this is Bobby Galswan.
[phonetic] I just want to give a shout out to all my friends that I've worked
with throughout the years in the space shuttle program and a special shout
out to all those engineers that worked with us in the mission evaluation room.
Keep up the good work.
We've got a lot to do in the future and it's been a great time.
We've had a great ride and it's time to go on to the next thing.
Talk to you soon.
>>Thank you NASA and the great NASA family and all of you
who have supported it all these years, for making dream come true.
>>We ought to all be very, very proud of what we've accomplished
through the last several years in low earth orbit.
If you look back on the space shuttle program it's a peak that has not been paralleled today
by any other country in this world and what we're gonna do in the future,
both in space station and beyond low earth orbit, only this country can lead
and make happen so to all of you out there, thank you very much.
And we look forward to our future together.
>>Congratulations on 30 great years on successful completion of STS135.
We're very proud of you and wish you the best in the future.
Thank you very much.
>>I'd like to thank everybody who's helped NASA, indirectly and directly,
to make everything that we now have possible.
I'd like to give a special thanks to all my coworkers of the Cargo Mission Contract.
>>Hi, I'm John Herrington and I want to thank everybody in Houston, everybody that's worked
in the NASA program at Johnson Space Center, Kennedy Space Center.
Everyone has done such a remarkable job at making such an incredibly complex vehicle fly
and do some remarkable things for both the United States and for the world.
Space Station is an incredible engineering achievement and having been a part
of that I can only thank all the folks that put in the hard work and effort
that made it possible for me, as well as for many of my colleagues, to fly in space.
Jerry Ross once told me the only reason you're standing 195 feet
above the launch pad surface is you're standing on the shoulders
of everybody that made it possible.
So my heartiest thanks to all of you.
Thank you.
>>I'd just like to say hello and a big thank you to all of you people that helped make Rendezvous
such a grand success for the space shuttle program.
>>You know it's been a great ride, shuttle's been great, stations gonna continue
but you gotta just remember you're the home of Orion,
you're the home of MPCV and the future of exploration.
You always were, you always will be so we look forward to a bright future
and let's keep leaning forward and let's go explore.
>>I want to thank everybody for participating and supporting in the space shuttle program.
It's been a wonderful program and it certainly has been a tribute
to this country and what this country can do.
>>I want to send a shout out to the world's first fleet of reusable spacecraft
and all the people who stood behind that space craft
and that fleet in order to fly 135 missions.
>>I would just like to thank everybody in the NASA family, all those people that have worked
so hard for so long to make the space shuttle program successful.
I wanna wish my congratulations to you all and my thanks to doing such a great job
and to allow me to have safe flights up and back on the space shuttle.
All that the thousands and thousands of people that have made all that happen,
thank you very much and congratulations.
>>Big shout out to mission's operations directorate keeping things going
and continuing to keep things going.
Of course the astronaut office, all the great astronauts that have put this program working
and continuing to work on the space station, thank you for letting me be a part of it all.
I've loved every minute of it.
>>To all you folks that have made this thing happen, you've done a fantastic job and keep it
up because we have a lot of places to go.
We're just getting ready to go to the final frontier and it never ends.
>>Hi guys, its Dianna.
What up? [laughter] Hope all is well.
We'll look forward to the next day.
Every day is a new day.
We never know what can come from it so let's keep hoping for the best.
>>My shout out is to the next generation.
You can do so much better than we've done.
Let your imaginations run free.
Take this program and do something that you'll look back on
and say what a fantastic accomplishment.
