Ive followed this subject since the early sixties and Tonight the first time since the tragedy I was able to see the International space station traverse the night sky. It never fails to thrill me seeing this bright moving "star" above my home,Knowing theres people of all nations up there working as one to explore the very fabric of our universe.At the moment the Nasa site is paying tribute to the crew who lost their lives

Rtus - I agree with you, and I also have been fascinated by space and space travel since the early 60s.

However, maybe this is not a good time to post this?

is it?

You are correct as usual. However, I'm sure that you appreciate the current interest in the topic. Maybe a section could be provided in Links as there are a lot of astronomy sites that may be of use to members here. Astronomy may be too restrictive - "technology/science"?

Excellent idea VoG™.

I feel the same way as you "all nations up there working as one to explore the very fabric of our universe" and was very shocked and some what disturbed to stumble across this news :

Thanks for your original post. Your second link has gone straight into my favourites. I doubt if I would have ever found this if not posted in the Helproom!
