The Atlantic's In Focus page has a photo collection from Endeavour's last flight, STS-134. The photos are amazing. I particularly love the ones of the Shuttle in space, with the long-exposure of the earth beneath.

I flew down to Florida to try to watch the launch of STS-134 in May. Alas, the initial launch date was scrubbed due to heater electrical problems. My wife and I spent all of 2 days in Florida, mostly driving and sitting out in Titusville. Love the adventure, hated to miss the launch.

Carolyn Collins Petersen has a nice blog post about some of her memories of the Space Shuttle Program.

As NASA winds down its space shuttle missions -- Endeavour launches on April 29 and Atlantis is scheduled for late June -- it's kind of hard to think that after those flights, there will be no direct access to space via NASA.

I'm hoping to go down to the Cape to see Endeavour's launch on Friday. So far, all systems are green for my trip and for the launch!

I saw this on the morning that NASA did it. The day before Space Shuttle Discovery landed for the last time, William Shatner gave a personalized wake-up call.

Some folks at JSC put together a rocking video with tons of the ascent imagery from one of the recent Space Shuttle flights. Cool, eh?

There are only four more Space Shuttle flights scheduled before they shut the program down!
