To commemorate well the passing of an era, pictures speak louder than words.
Farewell Atlantis: Part 1.
If you have not tracked the installation of the Cupola—an observatory module attached to the Tranquility module (Node 3) of the International Space Station—earlier this month, more and better pix are popping up almost daily, courtesy of NASA.
And ain’t it great? As taxpayers these pix are yours and mine!

The Enterprise is enroute to the New Paris colony on Makus III to deliver medical supplies to victims of an ongoing plague, when Captain Kirk gets distracted by a shiny quasar, Murasaki 321. Galactic High Commissioner Ferris, a grumpy officer in fancy duds, objects to stopping to investigate, but Kirk insists his mission includes scientific study of cosmic phenomenon. They dispatch shuttlecraft 7, the Galileo, to take a closer look with seven crew members on board: Mr. Spock, Dr. McCoy, Mr. Scott, Lieutenant Boma, Mr. Gaetano, Mr. Latimer, and Yeoman Mears. It shouldn’t take long to get some readings and return to the ship and resume their journey to Makus III.
