bj's MST The Most Unforgettable Space Shuttle Pictures Photograph from NASA via Reuters Sitting on a rolling platform, the space shuttle Challenger emerges from the mist at Kennedy Space Center in Florida as it heads toward the launch pad, just visible in the distance, in November 1982. Challenger lifted off on its maiden voyage in April 1983 for the sixth shuttle mission. When the space shuttle Atlantis lands on Thursday, it will wrap up STS-135, the final shuttle mission in the U.S. program's 30-year history. Even with the tragic losses of Challenger and Columbia , the space shuttle has become an icon among U.S. science and technology achievements. "The space shuttle has been with us at the heart and soul of the human spaceflight program for about 30 years, and it's a little sad to see it go away," STS-135 mission commander Christopher Ferguson recently told reporters in a televised interview from the ISS. "It's going to be an emotional moment for a lot of people that dedicated their lives to the shuttle program for 30 years.

The lady's name was Mrs. Wilkinson (I couldn't find her first name) and she lived in Australia. So did the bird. It visited her daily for food. Adam Cole/NPR When James the bird decided to woo Mrs. According to those who were there, on one occasion James sang for 43 minutes. These birds are amazing. Chook lived in a cage next to a panda exhibit while it was under construction so presumably that's how he learned to do perfect renditions of hammers, power drills, and car alarms. For example, when the BBC's David Attenborough ran into a lyrebird deep in the Australian woods, the bird not only sang the songs of 20 other forest birds, it also did a perfect imitation of foresters and their chainsaws, who apparently were getting closer. These birds were, in effect, recording the sounds of their own habitat destruction. Are Lyrebirds Accidental Historians? Well, maybe.
