Up, up and away

Much though the Space Shuttle is a ridiculous throwback to the 1970s, much though NASA is a tarnished, bloated, stumbling beast of an organisation, much though the US space program has been in hock to the military ever since it first started, much though they should throw the whole thing away and start again from scratch...Much though all that I still can't help getting caught up in the drama of a Shuttle launch.

STS-121 coverage
here. As Rush warbled, 'Lit up with anticipation, we arrive at the launching site...'

Roll on July 1st.
