Doomsday

Watching The Skies

 

So the end of the world came and went without anything happening back on the 21st December 2012. But when is the next forecast of doom scheduled for? Such a positive posting this is, but quite an interesting read nonetheless.

Enterprise Retires To New York

As the NASA space shuttle program comes to a close, a series of commemorative flybys by the remaining craft are producing some amazing sights as they glide over famous landmarks in the US. Here the Space Shuttle Enterprise flies over New York as it comes to land at JFK International Airport before being retired to the USS Intrepid Air and Space Museum. As one of the women being interviewed says in the news report, it is also poignant that the shuttle was able to fly over Manhattan with cheering crowds as New Yorker’s have taken back their skies. I’m sure Enterprise will be a very popular tourist attraction when it is installed on the Intrepid. It is a sad day though to be sure as it is an end of era for the US and it’s manned space exploration. Hopefully something new is being designed, a space craft that will continue the exciting work of its predecessor.

Amazing time-lapse photography of the Earth from a camera mounted outside the International Space Station. Look out for the lightning strikes and the aurora borealis.
