Space Shuttle Launch

I don’t know how many here keep track of the Shuttle Program, but, as someone in love with Space, I like to follow it.  So, I thought I would post some pictures of the Shuttle Launch for everyone to watch.

Location: Banana River Launch Site

Location: Camera Site 2

Location: External Fuel Tank

Starting about 7:25, you can see the Aurora in that video, where Solar Particles and Radiation meets the Geo-Magnetic Field.  Very Cool.  And from about 8:36 to 9:00, you can watch the External Fuel Tank fall away.

Location: KSC DOAMS

Wow, look at those flares from the SRB’s…

I will start to do this with all of the rest of the lift-offs for the next ten years, until Orion 15 takes Altair 2 on the return trip to the Moon, when I hope NASA does something similar to that We Choose The Moon project that AOL is doing.

Speaking of which, I hope EVERYBODY turns to that website on Monday for the Live Landing.

Boiling Over: France under Media Blackout

Why is the mainstream media saying NOTHING about the situation in France?  We are watching a full-fledged Intafada in effect in France, and it seems like only Atlas is covering it.  I expect this from CNN, but FOX, where are you on this?

Iran: Sources Speak

I have been reluctant to post on the Revolution that Wouldn’t Die in Iran, because, not having had my blog at the start, I have been unsure as to where to start.  Well, Atlas Shrugs has given me my starting point. And it disgusts me.  Iran deserves better then the current government they are plagued with.

And, here is why.

In the Islamic Republic it is illegal to execute a young woman, regardless of her crime, if she is a virgin, he explained. Therefore a “wedding” ceremony is conducted the night before the execution: The young girl is forced to have sexual intercourse with a prison guard – essentially raped by her “husband.”

The Israeli Miracle (Up Next: The Japanese Miracle?)

In the ground-shifting anime and manga, Ghost in the Shell, there exists something called the Japanese Miracle.  It is a nanite system that is able to eat and process radiation into something that is safe for humanity to encounter.  Well, Israel is working on something similar, with a new medication that safely protects people from the radiation effects of a nuclear bomb.

I vote we call it the Israeli Miracle.
