    Default Shuttle Endeavour....Mission 26

    I know this isn’t bee related but it put a smile on my face. In times when people swaddle their children in explosives and send them out to self detonate in crowds of their neighbors…and my despair for mankind is at its peak….sometimes I need a reminder of the grand things humans do. What a magnificent machine. Twenty five times it carried humans into earth orbit. And twenty five times, following a fiery reentry through the atmosphere, it safely brought them home. And this is mission 26…the nearest thing to a well deserved two day ticker tape parade.
    It’s only a three minute video….but it surely moved me.

    The flyover was absolutely awe inspiring. They flew over my neighborhood at 1500 ft!

    One of my regrets is not having made the time to go down for a launch. What an amazing machine. And as I said in my first post, some people are driven by anger but this reminds me that there are many who're driven by dreams. I know....it sounds schmaltzy.

    Dan,
    You are on a bee topic!
    Honey bees were sent into space with their stingers trimed. They were observed for comb building in zero gravity!
