Shuttle Water Tank
On the edge of Cruces, lies a water tank mural painted in memory of the astronauts that gave their lives for our space exploration.
Las Cruces is home to the new spaceport, and this memorial has special meaning to me as I watched the space shuttle land the one time it did land here in 1982. It was out at White Sands, and it is still an alternate landing site today.
