Atlantis Lift Off!

It's the first space shuttle launch of 2007. This has been a tumultuous year for NASA so far.

Very tumultuous indeed... is it just me, or do we seem to be going backward in regard to space technology as far as safety for astronauts? NOw it seems hard to blieve we ever successfully landed on the moon.

The space shuttle is the most complex machine ever built by man. It's natural that sometimes things will go wrong with it, especially if nature is in a foul mood.

Thankfully, the current launch was flawless.

This is what Bertrand Russell said about religion...

Religion is based, I think, primarily and mainly upon fear. It is partly the terror of the unknown and partly, as I have said, the wish to feel that you have a kind of elder brother who will stand by you in all your troubles and disputes. ... A good world needs knowledge, kindliness, and courage; it does not need a regretful hankering after the past or a fettering of the free intelligence by the words uttered long ago by ignorant men.
