it almost seems to me that one of the recent President's actually said something about wanting to find out if UFO's are real . Maybe Clinton? and then he never said anything after getting into office.

For those of you who have seen the pictures, they look like nothing. But later this week when Curiosity takes out it's main camera, we will get hi res color pictures.

Now moving to something back on Earth..

On Friday, Space Shuttle Endeavour's tail cone was delivered to OPF-2, where Endeavour sits now. The tail cone will cover Endeavour's RSMEs on her ferry flight to Los Angeles. The tail cone will be installed soon.

I fire up the willing engine, responding with a roar. Tires spitting gravel I commit my weekly crime.

From NASA,

Shuttle Update for Aug. 6
Mon, 06 Aug 2012 11:36:18 AM EDT

Shuttle Endeavour:

Inside Kennedy's Orbiter Processing Facility-2, the tail cone has been installed around Endeavour's trio of replica shuttle main engines. The aerodynamic tail cone will protect the engines during the upcoming ferry flight to California Science Center in Los Angeles, where Endeavour will go on permanent public display. The flight is scheduled for mid-September.

Shuttle Atlantis:

Shuttle Atlantis is being temporarily stored in the Vehicle Assembly Building at NASA's Kennedy Space Center in Florida. Atlantis is scheduled to return to Orbiter Processing Facility-2 in August to complete transition and retirement processing. Atlantis is being prepared for public display at the Kennedy Space Center Visitor Complex and is scheduled to roll over to the complex in November. The Kennedy Space Center Visitor Complex is targeting a July 2013 grand opening for Atlantis' new home.

I hope private companies take on space exploration... Then maybe one day we will be like Star Trek.
