Photo Friday - To Infinity, and Beyond!

Space shuttle Atlantis launches into orbit

Clearly not one of my own pictures. This week I thought it would be appropriate to use a professional photo from NASA in honor of the last shuttle launch, which coincidently went up this morning. Did you all watch live? I did. I'm not a huge space junky, but you can't help but get caught up in the power of a launch. Thinking about space always makes me feel so small. It's sad in a way that we won't be continuing to send manned missions up there, because I really feel there's more out there to do and explore. Plus, we all know I'm addicted to travel, and space travel totally counts.

  1. What a picture! It's a strange feeling that this is the last launch, isn't it? But... maybe you can make them start it up again. (Don't forget your camera!) Expanding your vision when events like this occur does make one feel small, which is one reason it doesn't feel right that it's the last. They're our outlet to something out of reach. Gorgeous picture, Sweets. So happy you posted it today. :o) Time to dreamy sigh over it...

    Hugs and blessings! :o)
