Photos Of The Shuttle's Final Years
Wired's Raw File photo blog is always a great resource for interesting photo essays. The recent gallery of photographs by Philip Scott Andrews chronicles the final years of the Space Shuttle program. And while I initially expected to simply scroll through the pictures for a second, I spent several minutes gazing at the little details in these intimate behind the scenes images—the likes of which I'd never seen before in the 30-year history of the shuttle program. It's a fitting chronicle of the end of an era, and a worthwhile visit if you're at all interested in the legacy of the iconic program.
