Shuttle ENTERPRISE Waits For The NY Debut

The prototype space shuttle Enterprise is seen mated on top of NASA’s modified Boeing 747 Shuttle Carrier Aircraft at Dulles International Airport in Virginia on Friday.
Enterprise was the first orbiter built for the space shuttle program, but never went into orbit. It was used primarily for ground and flight tests within the atmosphere.Enterprise had been on display at the Smithsonian National Air and Space Museum’s Udvar-Hazy Center in Virginia, but is now being prepared for its new home at the Intrepid Sea Air and Space Museum in New York.

There are a lot of great shots of the launch, before and after, finally up on The Big Picture, but I especially love this one.

This image of space shuttle Atlantis was taken shortly after the rotating service structure was rolled back at Launch Pad 39A, Thursday, July 7, 2011. Atlantis is set to liftoff today, Friday, July 8, at 11:26 a.m. EDT on the final flight of the Space Shuttle Program.
Watch the launch as it happens on NASA.gov.

Tonight is the Total Lunar Eclipse  | via MSNBC.com
Akira Fujii captured this record of the moon’s progress dead-center through Earth’s shadow in July 2000 by aligning his camera on the same star for successive exposures.


NASA is planning to stream live Web video of the moon as seen from Marshall Space Flight Center in Alabama. The embedded video coverage will be accompanied by a Java-enabled Web chat with NASA astronomer Mitzi Adams from midnight to 5 a.m. ET Tuesday. Another lunar expert at Marshall, Rob Suggs, is taking your questions in the same chat forum from 3 to 4 p.m. ET today.
NASA has set up a Flickr group for lunar eclipse photography, and NASA’s Jet Propulsion Laboratory will feature one of the Flickr photos as official official JPL computer wallpaper. You can bet that SpaceWeather.com will also offer some great eclipse pictures after the event.
