Up in the sky…

 

Space Shuttle Discovery took its final flight today on its way to becoming an artifact at the Smithsonian’s National Air & Space museum.     Kind of wish I had been in Washington DC to see its fly-over.

 

In other news, SpaceX has announced a launch date for April 30th for its next Dragon capsule.   If the mission is successful this will be the first visit to the International Space Station by a private space-craft.    This is a big deal for the future of America’s space program, as commercial operators will be responsible for getting supplies (and quite possibly crew) to and from things like the space station.
