The War for Evermore

Last Landing

Atlantis touches down at the Kennedy Space Center, July 21, 2011. One day and forty-two years ago we landed on the moon for the first time.

For the first time in 50 years a manned-space flight program has ended and the United States has no successor project to replace it.

A moment of silence, please, for the passing of an era unlike any other in history

‘Anon rush’d by the bright Hyperion;
His flaming robes stream’d out beyond his heels,
And gave a roar, as if of earthly fire,
That scared away the meek ethereal hours
And made their dove wings tremble. On he flared…’

~John Keats
