…we will be restoring normality just as soon as we are sure what is normal anyway. ~ Douglas Adams, The Hitchhiker’s Guide to the Galaxy.

Lofty Ambitions went to launch pad 39A and saw Atlantis! That means we have seen each remaining orbiter on the launch pad, ready to go for her last mission. We are completely drenched. especially from the heavy downpour while standing outside the buses while they did security on journalists’ and photos’ equipment. But it’s worth risking malaria from the enormous mosquitos to see the space shuttle up close and personal.
Here are some photos that, we hope, express our excitement and the twinge of sadness.
