A Single Tear In Space

Well today marked the day of the last launch and the end of NASA's space shuttle program. Watching the videos and goodbye's, its hard not to shed a tear to the end of something amazing.

Until then, we can enjoy the human built angel in the sky, the International Space Station and the memories of all the launches.
