Shuttle Swan Song


The space shuttle program has ended and the space shuttles, Atlantis, Discovery and Endeavor, are being retired to three different museums in Washington D.C., Florida, and California.  Below are shots of the flightdeck of the shuttle Endeavor and of the shuttle Discovery riding piggy back for a last time...much the same way as did the experimental shuttle, Enterprise, 35 years ago.  (Both pictures courtesy of Ben Cooper, Launch Photography).  It is hard to believe this much time has passed since the beginning of the program.  I look forward to what other space travel alternatives that NASA, Richard Branson and others continue to develop.

Blessings, Don
