Pilot's Seat of Space Shuttle Endeavour

It was an amazing day at KSC today, with thousands of photos to share...


My Everyscape Pano rig is on the right, and I had to have everyone clear out of the flight deck for the 360° shots... which gave me a chance to set this one up with timer. =)


I saw Endeavour fly on the STS-118 launch, and got a bunch of photos of her glory.


When she ships out to the museum, they will not be able to power up the displays again.


And today was bittersweet, the point of no return... as they drained the fluids from the orbiter, and that is a irrevocable step. Like draining the lifeblood from the program.
