One of the things of the many that NASA does well, and perhaps it is one of the most important things that NASA does, is to provide us earthbound land lubbers beautiful pictures, images and video of outer space, of the sights around our world, and of the sights around worlds and stars beyond ours. The pictures are better than science fiction, because they are real, and often times they are much better than what we can imagine.
This morning , Sunday, May 16th, the Space shuttle Atlantis, on its final voyage, arrived and docked, at the International Space Station. NASA provided the video feed. See the video. These images are just the latest eye candy from our space uncles and aunts at NASA. The Atlantis and its crew of six are expected to stay at the station for a week long visit, and feed us more of this wonderful eye candy.
