Crochet Space Shuttle

Sure, today folks are celebrating the royal wedding, but my thoughts have been more focused on today’s potential shuttle launch. Targeted for a 3:47 PM EST launch, the space shuttle Endeavour will make it’s final journey in to orbit in the next-to-last shuttle flight ever. You can read more about the mission and follow the NASA Tweetup in progress to get a special look at this historic event. Now, enjoy some of our favorite space crafts we’ve shared here on Craft to get you in the space-y spirit!

    Love it, Rachel! I’ve been thinking of you all morning!!

  • Rachel Hobson

    Thanks, Susan! But, drat – the launch was just scrubbed for at least 48 hours, likely longer. At least we have rad space crafts to keep us happy until Endeavour is ready to fly! :)

    oh darn! I hadn’t seen the weather updates, just all the cool lead-up stuff earlier yesterday. Looking forward to the rescheduled launch! Are you working on something fun and space-related to pass the time til then??
