STS-127 launch, 6th time is a charm!, originally uploaded by thedaner.

Isn’t it amazing that we (the people of the Earth) send people into space?

Today the shuttle should rendezvous with the International Space Station. Canadian Julie Payette is aboard the shuttle, and another Canadian, Robert Thirske, is already at the Space Station, making this the first time two Canadians will be in space at the same time.

(There have been eight Canadians in space – I couldn’t name them all, could you?)

Enjoy today’s photo! If you like the photo, please drop a comment to the original photographer at Flickr.

P.S. Roberta Bondar, Marc Garneau, Chris Hadfield, Steven MacLean, Julie Payette, Robert Thirsk, Bjarni Tryggvason (born in Iceland), Dafydd Williams.
