I’m not a huge space shuttle freak. I think that the current NASA model of space exploration has completely lost its way from what the space program was originally designed to do – beat the crap out of the Russians. That, and EXPLORE SPACE. All the shuttle seems to be used for now is truckin’ food up to the poor sods on the ISS and fixing the Hubble. When the hell are we going back to the Moon? When are we finally getting off our duff and going to Mars?
Regardless, the space shuttle Discovery launched the other day and I’m sure you haven’t heard anything about it on the news (sarcasm) . I like this picture. It’s something you rarely see – an external fuel tank hurtling towards Earth.
Watch out, people! Hurtling fuel tank coming your way!
