Cool picture of the Space Shuttle Liftoff this morning

Liftoff this morning…

Into the Night

The Space Shuttle Endeavour lights up the early morning sky at NASA’s Kennedy Space Center in Florida, lifting off at 2:28 a.m. EDT on Tuesday, March 11.

Endeavour’s mission, STS-123, will carry two new components to the International Space Station: the first section of the Japanese Kibo lab and Canada’s two-armed robotic system, known as Dextre.

Endeavour will also deliver a new station crew member, Garretr Reisman, and bring back European Space Agency astronaut Leopold Eyharts, who has been on the station since Feb. 9.

Will someone please remind me why we need to keep doing this when other, more terrestrial priorities seem evident?

Nonetheless, what a cool picture.

Anybody wanna measure this carbon footprint?
