There's not many words I can use to describe these pictures.
I wish I could just post pictures of birds and other animals for you.
However, we can't ignore the disaster of this oil spill.
What's happening to my beautiful home?
It didn't take long for Atlantis to gain speed and altitude
Wow. What a sight! That was excellent. I was very excited.
It's much better to watch in person that to watch it on TV.
Atlantis is already in orbit.
There are only 2 more launches for the space shuttle program.
I plan to get closer for the next one.
These pictures were taken from about 30 km away.
Sadly, this is the last mission for Atlantis. She'll lift off Friday morning the 14th of May.
Atlantis will rendezvous with the international space station.
The total planned mission time is 12 days.
"Godspeed Atlantis and Good Luck"
At this time, all efforts to stop the widening oil spill have failed. The recent attempt to "syphon"
the oil failed because ice formed on the contraption effectively blocking the funnel of the syphon.
This kind of operation had never been attempted before. Regardless, BP engineers didn't count
on ice at such a depth. It's rather foolish to think ice could form in waters at 33 degrees Fahrenheit,
Efforts to break the spill up with chemicals are faring better. However, this is only treating
the symptoms not the disease. However, the side effects of these chemicals are not known at this time.
The oil spill from the accident is coming to Florida! I can't beleive it. What can we do? This is going to ruin our beautiful beaches. I'm very upset. There is nothing I can do personally. We are helpless. I pray that it doesn't hit the Everglades. This is going to be the worst disaster in American history.
Is this what Florida is going to look like? God help us, please!
