Weather Musing (sort of)...Final Shuttle Launch

Postby weatherman » Mon May 16, 2011 11:46 am

Hi,

This is a tenuous link, but one I hope you will find interesting.

The Space Shuttle Endeavour will be blasting off at 1256 GMT today for the final time.

Over the years the Shuttles have contributed massively to research into climate and weather, as well as improvements in weather satellite technology.

So, it may not be the strongest link ever, but those of us who work, play and earn our living from the weather all have a little to thank the Space Shuttles for.

Launch can be watched live here http://www.nasa.gov/

Best wishes,
Simon
