Space Shuttle Flyover

Endeavour flew over JSC on the back of its 747 carrier today. It's on its way back to Florida after the STS-126 landing in California!

    Thanks all for the comments and kudos! This was taken when Endeavour flew over NASA Johnson Space Center in 2008. I saw it again on its final trip 2 weeks ago. :)

    I took a series of photos during the final Endeavorc flight over the University of Arizona Mall in Tucson, Arizona:

    Bye Bye Miss American Pie

    I am a bit sad that we have no other Space Shuttle design operable. It was known for some time that the current design approach of a vehicle mounted external to it's booster rocket is inherently unsafe, so it is a good thing it is being retired. However, not having a shuttle design to replace it was not a happy end of the line result for US space aficionados...

    Don MacLean lyrics:
    So, bye, bye, Miss American Pie.
    Drove my Chevy to the levee, but the levee was dry.
    An' them good ol' boys were drinkin' whiskey and rye.
    Singin' "This'll be the day that I die.
    This'll be the day that I die."
