Celebrate Today’s Shuttle Launch With Space Crafts

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!!

  2. Rachel Hobson says:

    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??
