The Last Launch: Space Shuttle Atlantis

July 8, 2011

Today marks the closing chapter of NASA’s Space Shuttle program with the final launch of Atlantis from Cape Canaveral.  For 30 years, NASA and the United States have helped pave the way for space exploration, launching 134 missions since its inception.  The Space Shuttle program is to our generation what the moon race was to our parents and grandparents, and I for one am sad to see it go.  As a kid I lobbied to attend space camp and although I didn’t get the opportunity to go, I did get to see a shuttle launch while spending a summer in Florida.  You don’t have to be some space geek to appreciate a shuttle launching into space, it’s really one of the most impressive things to watch and experience.  Sadly, today’s launch is the last on American soil and marks the end of a great story.

    With havin so much written content do you ever run into any problems of plagorism or copyright
    infringement? My website has a lot of exclusive content I’ve either authored myself
    or outsourced but it looks like a lot of it is popping it up all over the web without my agreement.
    Do you know any methods to help prevent content from being ripped off?
    I’d genuinely appreciate it.
