Real Life Space (shuttle) porn  
Kidlet is doing a project of making a space shuttle, so I had to go find some pics. I found some rather nifty ones, of views you don't often see.

So here, have some pics.

Atlantis leaving the VAB (vehicle assembly building) to travel the 3 mi to the launch facility.

Enroute:

The Endeavour recently landed in California, so it had to be carried back to Florida on the back of the 747, which will never stop being cool. Except when they stop flying the shuttles, which is real soon now.

Takeoff from Edwards AFB:

In flight:

At Kennedy, crane assembly for removing the orbiter from the 747.

so, there, a non-fannish picspam. Unless you're a fan of space and the space program and, y'know, real people doing real shit in real space.
