Default International Space Station - Isn't she a beauty??




The European Columbus science lab module is being sent up right now with Atlantis. It going to be docked to the very front, left side, in the center. The station keeps getting bigger and bigger! Six more modules to go!

This is soooooo cute... Read this on the back of my NASA insignia sticker they gave out at last years JPL Open House. I'm sure this is where the Star Trek writers got their idea for the opening words to TOS. The science inspires the dream, the dream creates the art...the art fuels the dream and continues to inspire the science!

The NASA Vision:
To improve life here,
To extend life to there,
To Find life beyond.

The NASA Mission:
To understand and protect our home planet,
To explore the universe and search for life,
To inspire the next generation of explorers
...as only NASA can.

Shuttle Launch Prep Powerpoint Presentation

The pdf version

About a year ago I was sent this. It is a rare glimpse into all that it takes to get that space shuttle into space. Enjoy!
