The Final Frontier

8 Jul

As you are no doubt aware, the space shuttle program is set to end today.  The final shuttle may or may not blast off this morning as planned.  Right now NASA is saying that there is only a 30% chance it will lift-off, on time at least, due to the stormy environment.  I hate the end of eras in general and this seems particularly sad to me.  I know there will be future initiatives but its close still makes me a little uncomfortable.

There are about 450,000 songs that deal with space travel or the space age or any sort of related subject and I was tempted by at least 12 of them for today’s posting.  But ultimately, all I can think about is NASA and how strange today must feel for everyone there.

So even though this N.A.S.A. stands for North America South America, here’s “Strange Enough” (feat. Karen O., Ol’ Dirty Bastard, Fatlip).

Truth be told, if I hadn’t already featured The Carpenters on Margauxville, I would have had a bigger dilemma.  But I did, so I didn’t.  That said (are you following?), you MUST watch this video.  It is the second best video in all of space.  (First best video ever, here.)

Should I cross my fingers that the shuttle lifts-off at 11:26a or hope that the final run is delayed so that the ending isn’t really here?  Now that’s a dilemma.
