The Only Thing More Unnerving Is That No One Seems to Care About It Anymore.

In case you missed it, STS-117 launched launched successfully on Friday and appears to be going quite well. I’m quite upset at myself for not paying more attention to it and forgetting that it was going up this month, and more upset that I never saw anything about it on the news or anywhere else.

It’s really a shame that we appear to have forgotten how important (and how dangerous) space travel can be – at least until something actually does go wrong, and then everyone manages to care again.

There’s some great pictures that are tagged as sts117 on flickr; I suggest checking them out.
