OMG this is awesome!
A great NASA slideshow set to Alpha by Vangelis!
Max. video and volume are strongly recommended!
In case you’re wondering, that was indeed the crew of Space Shuttle Columbia, taken shortly before the tragic end of their mission. As we approach the end of the shuttle portion of our space program, I can only hope that we never lose sight of the vision that these brave people – and their predecessors – died for.
I know that the vision is still very strong within those who continue this great work. But the future has always been in our hands – and in the hands of our children. Please inspire them to reach beyond their grasp!
I want ice water.
