The improv job to put a sunshield up where the solar array was supposed to deploy was genius.  Steely-eyed balls-of-brass missile men.

What the hell with that site?!  It won't load, and every time I try to close the window, it opens itself back up!

Controlled re-entry?  They didn't really know where it was going to land.

/Sorry Aussie farkers, dumping it in the Pacific meant hitting you.

Should have built the deck before putting up the parasol.

Will you still need me, will you still feed me? When I'm on the ocean floor.

So did they kill the spider after the web study, or did it come back to Earth to spawn a race of cosmic-powered space-spiders?

We put a space station in orbit 40 years ago and yet we can't present more than 1 picture without a slide show today.

I just had a conference wrap up this afternoon with retired astronaut Mike Mullane as the final speaker and it was awesome. I've always loved space as growing up in the 80's my mother's cousin was training for a shuttle mission and he gave me some cool stuff like a space pen (would still like a Russian space pencil) and freeze dried ice-cream. When the Challenger tragedy he was bumped about 10 years (he's a Canadian astronaut) but eventually went up on the shuttle Discovery back in 1998. Big props to Hatfield for bringing the space program back into people's minds. Mr. Mullane seemed a little sad about speaking of the shuttle in the past tense.
