Weekly Photo Challenge: Ready

Final Space Shuttle Mission - Atlantis STS 135

For this week’s photo challenge “ready”, I have to defer to a photo I posted a little over a week ago because I don’t think I have another one that is more appropriate than this one.

It’s a quite literal translation but this is a picture I took of the final space shuttle mission, Atlantis STS 135, which I attended last year. We were able to get a special viewing of the shuttle the night before lift-off and it was a beautiful sight to see. This shuttle was ready for departure and we witnessed an incredible lift-off the next day.

  1. I saw the shuttle launch back in November of 2009. I would have liked to have seen it again before they stopped the program but I didn’t. It truly is beautiful to witness in person and that’s a day I will never forget!

  3. Oh wow, beautiful photo. It looks so grand and surreal! I’d have loved to be able to see something like this before they stopped them. Of course living in England there’s not a whole lot of chance…
