Image yourself floating outside of our atmosphere... You will begin to see something different from what we see on earth... Above us is nothing but a pitch black emptiness, yes full of unexplained mysteries. I wonder how long it will take for humans to unravel some of its mysteries... or will we ever be able to?

Damn, these shuttles are just amazing pieces of equipment. I don't think I or anyone else here fully appreciate just how beautiful and magnificent they are. And yet they are old technology waiting to get replaced by an even more beautiful machine.
