    Not stupid at all!

    Awesome freaking post!! theChive should do a science-related post every now and then. Like a monthly or weekly thing. Nothing crazy….

    • 5eagles

      GREAT Idea! I second that.

    Transformers DO exist. #78 "Endeavour doesn't want to be fed – it wants to hunt!" Great post, keep chasing the stars.

    I grew up in Daytona Beach, FL. I remember being in elementary school and everything stopping so we could watch the shuttles launch. We'd watch on TV for a few minutes and then once we knew it was in the air, we'd all rush outside and look to the sky to see it shooting into space. I do feel bad for the next generation of kids who wont get to have that same experience.

    Some of the final pictures were taken at the Space and Rocket Center in Huntsville, AL. The Shuttle's Main Engines were developed and monitored by Pratt & Whitney Rocketdyne out of Huntsville, AL. Most people don't realize that Marshall Space Flight Center is the original home of NASA… This is where Von Braun came to develop the rockets that took us to the moon and back.

    #103 Sorry I came so quick. Would it be okay if I tried an early re-entry?

    #128 I nostalgia'd REAL hard… The ladders brought it all back. That was a fun time. That week ended with the OJ chase.

    I piloted Atlantis that summer. I too got to dream big.

    I with ya Rick. Without an active space program, and I mean something public and daring, today's youth just won't get the inspiration that others have gotten in the past. As someone in a hard science field this worries me for the US's future. I really don't believe we'll be able to stay a dominant world power w/o adequately educated citizens in the STEM fields. All of the attention that the Mars Curiosity Rover got was pretty impressive, I wish that would happen more often!

    <img src=""/&gt; #29 the most fantastic out of all these pics.<img src=""/&gt;

    #77 It's a sad day now that the space program is basically defunct. The best (sad) story about the final flight last week is on Cobwebs in the Wine Cellar ( <a href="” target=”_blank”>…)

    #103 wow, find her

    Beautiful pictures of what private business will accomplish in a fraction of the time it took NASA…flame away…

    • Tom

      Actually no Flame here… I hope that private companies can consistanly achieve LEO. Let the hard stuff ride on the shoulders of NASA. We need to dream big… my kids need to understand that we actually CAN touch the stars.

    Can you actually download these in high res? I may be missing something, but they seem awefully small 😦

    I remember seeing the first one launch in primary school – Columbia I think. And seeing
    the last launch a few years back. It made me sad. I love the Space Shuttle!
