Always growing older - never growing up.

Eclectic random geekery: Star Wars, Doctor Who, Sci-Fi, science, photography, LEGO, and stupid, stupid things.

This is my personal opinion / reblogging blog. If you're after my personal photos or awful photoshop creations, the links are below.

LIKE YOU CARE...

As they say in the classics "I'm too old for this shit".

That said, I live in sunny Brisbane (Australia), forging a career in advertising / marketing whilst enjoying life as it comes.

I take photos on my iPhone, listen to (a lot of) music on my iPhone, and like Star Wars. So yes, I'm a geek.

That's about it.

Party on!

The First Image of the Shuttle Entering Earth Is Simply Unbelievable

When I first saw this image just released by NASA I just couldn’t believe my eyes. It shows Atlantis re-entering the Earth’s atmosphere from the International Space Station, leaving a trail of fire behind it. As NASA describes it:
“This unprecedented view of the space shuttle Atlantis, appearing like a bean sprout against clouds and city lights, on its way home, was photographed by the Expedition 28 crew of the International Space Station. Airglow over Earth can be seen in the background.”

Driving A Slow Giant One Last Time
The last space shuttle launch is planned for July 8. But the shuttle Atlantis’ final trek to the launch pad is Tuesday night. It’s a historic milestone for NASA — and a very personal one for the people in charge of taking the shuttle on this first leg of its final journey.
The shuttle, its solid rocket boosters, and its fuel tank are all put together in NASA’s Vehicle Assembly Building, a tall hangar-like structure several miles away from the pad. The fully-assembled shuttle is a huge, heavy, and delicate object — and it needs to be transported standing upright.
So it travels on top of the crawler, which looks like a cross between a flatbed truck and a tank. The crawler guzzles gas — going only 32 feet per gallon — and is the biggest self-powered land vehicle in the world.
“It’s a bittersweet feeling. You hate to see anything come to an end,” says Bill Couch, one of only six people certified to drive the crawler. (via NPR)
