At 6:21 this morning we had the last in the dark launch of a Shuttle...
Below you see what I saw : two chaser planes following the shuttle..
Then a bit later I did get one shot that gave you the feeling just how fast it was going..
This is the moon the morning of the Shuttle flight... the same moon that we will no longer be going to again.. I had so hoped to see us land on the moon once again before my time here is over but now it looks like this will not be.
It seems the government has forgotten that, although there was a race for the moon, that it is a vital part of the human race making it out into space.
I believe we need to be in space. We need to find other habitable planets.. in case no one has noticed we do live on a very unstable planet. But of course this is just the thought of an old woman who will long be gone when this planet quite possibly becomes unlivable. I would like to think mankind will live on...but unless we stay in space, I have my doubts.
Three Shuttle shots to go... and then there were none.
