Space Shuttle Atlantis Lands

I was checking in on the live feed of the oil well blowout to see if they had made any progress with that operation that was supposed to start at dawn when I noticed in the sidebar a live feed of Atlantis landing. Neat! It was beautiful as it came through the clouds and the sun hit it. The instant the landing gear came down it disappeared into a shimmer of heat and tree cover blocking the view from that camera. But then they showed it again from a few other views. The space shuttle really is a good looking vehicle. I mean, up close it kind of has complexion issues, but from a distance, very nice lines. And from the back with the giant engines, it's really badass.

Video replay will by probably be here all day.
