It's not weird at all to use the Stanford libraries* for research when writing a fanfiction, is it?

IS IT


Yes the libraries at Stanford University STOP LOOKING AT ME LIKE THAT

These have been the voyages of the Space Shuttle Discovery.

Okay, the Star Trek thing notwithstanding, the end of the Shuttle program is breaking my heart. Yes, I know the things need to be retired, they're old and worn out and we need to focus on expanding our horizons (literally), but damn it, the Shuttle was a huge part of my life. I remember the first Shuttle launch, I remember climbing on the roof of our house to see the tiny, white V of the shuttle passing over us, I remember seeing the Challenger explode on TV in my fourth grade classroom... Space was a huge, huge thing in my house, partly because my mother was a Trekkie but mostly because I was raised as a nerd, by nerds, who loved the idea of a vast universe where anything is possible.

I can only hope the next phase of our space exploration is as awesome as the Shuttle was.

Thrusters on full.
