We finally got the Space Shuttle Atlantis off the ground, after two months of delays and accidents, and it looks totally rich and creamy, streaming into the sky on the back of its big booster rocket. How can we be planning to retire the space shuttle program when it's such an awesome source of porn? Not to mention the advancement of science: the shuttle's mission is to deliver that tiny Columbus laboratory to the International Space Station. Click through for a gallery.
The shuttle is like a pickup. It pretty much has just the capsule at the front and a bed in the back. So I guess going to the moon won't requre a bed to hawl stuff in. I do plan to see a launch before it's all over with. Also the hubble has outlived itself a few times. It's time for the new telescope. VIVA LA SPACE SHUTTLE and uh things of this nature.
