thaddeus_ces Honored to have been allowed to witness and photograph the private ceremony, and opening of the the new "Forever Remembered" exhibit at the @kennedyspacecenter #kennedyspacecenter. Both Columbia and Challenger crews find proper tribute to each of their uniquely different, and awe-inspiring lives. All of the departed have their own capsule which properly displays what they represented as human-beings. The capsules contain integral components of each lost astronauts lives, from model-airplanes, to baseballs caps, to katanas - they all seemed to have rather varied interests. Seeing objects of favor in their personal lives helps one to get a better mental picture of who each one of them was. I refer to this as the 'Hall of the Fallen.' prior to the exhibit being open to the public, we were allowed to tour and photograph - I'll be honest with you, I cried and whimpered near uncontrollably while slowly walking through and reading about each of their lives. Regretful I was never able to shake any of their hands, nor stare any in the eyeballs, or even or pester with requests for photographs and interviews. This was a moment. A very special kind of thing - fitting, yet hard to digest. Sad, yet happy to see them respected in such a way. So very thankful to even be here

Just us the media, the family of the departed, NASA employees including multiple astronauts, NASA Administrator Charlie Bolden, and KSC director Bob Cabana (both of which flew missions in the Columbia prior to its demise..

thaddeus_ces Among the lost cargo of the failed #spacex #CRS7 launch was the #microsoft #hololense. A "mixed reality" device which superimposes 3-dimensional holographs into your normal vision. Hence "mixed" reality. The intent was to arm #ISS astronauts with this technology to test, and upgrade efficiency in a number of categories. Imagine having the best neurosurgeon on the planet emailing holographic instructions for you to follow during a brain surgery, or complex repairs to a space station made easier with holograms imposed into your vision by NASA HQ - seems to be quite a number of applications for this kind of technology. Exciting stuff! "Hololense is the first ever untethered holographic computer and what it allows you to do is essentially create objects, but objects instead of being made out of matter, are made out of light." #futuretech #iss #nasasocial #isscargo #DragonCapsule #nasasocial #rocketscience #space #science #mixedreality #hologram #astronaut 12h

christopherarnolddesigns I had the chance to spend Sunday with a group of #MartinCounty friends who sent a high-altitude balloon, three cameras, a GPS and the charity #ExtraLife to the edge of space. This was actually their second mission. In 2014 they sent one camera to the stratosphere and back. Here's a short #timelapse as they filled that balloon with helium. See more on TCPalm.com. Follow this group on Facebook. Search for "Our Journey to the Stratosphere." #MartinCounty #Florida #science #math #stratosphere #space #atmosphere #earth #nasasocial #tcpalmsocial 1d

legna5 This was the best I was able to capture #Venus dancing with #Jupiter tonight. Hopefully tomorrow Monday night, the sky will be a lot clear.

legna5 Who said that Global Warming isn't real?
I feel sorry for the next two generations because they will pay the price for what we are doing now.

meganleestudio Thanks for posting, @thaddeus_ces! :)

Repost from @thaddeus_ces: Was able to exchange a few words with Morgan Spurlock (@morganspurlocknyc) after the failed #SpaceX CRS-7 launch. Was admittedly surprised to find he has an intense passion for aerospace endeavors. His depth of knowledge, respect for the field, and detailed understanding of the long-term implications of space investment was quite impressive. He was just upset as we all were regarding today's developments.
An open advocate of the @planetarysociety and their approach to the cosmos as well.
Was able to snap a picture of us both in full-support @billnye, @eringreeson, and the entire Planetary Society crew with this custom Nye postcard from my friends at @horseandhero.
