The Last Space Shuttle Launch

At a few minutes after 1am South Australian time, Saturday morning, the shuttle Atlantis will be launched on not only her final  voyage but the last such trip in the 30 year American space shuttle program. It is rather sad.
See more here about the event.

This leaves, for now, only the Russian-leased Baikonur facility in Kazakhstan as a viable space-port for connections to the International Space Station.
