Rocket Man!

I think every kid goes through the phase where they want to be a firefighter, comedian, police officer, astronaut...

The NASA Images website went live this past week, and features 21 NASA image collections merged into a massive and easily searchable online resource.

According to ohgizmo! "Over the next 5 years the partnership will see millions of photos and thousands of hours of video added to the site including imagery from the Apollo missions, the Hubble Space Telescope and experimental aircraft and spacecraft spanning NASA’s history."

A few pics...

"And i think it's gonna be a long long time
Till touch down brings me round again to find
I'm not the man they think i am at home
Oh no no no i'm a rocket man
Rocket man burning out his fuse up here alone"
~Rocket Man - Elton John

NASA also has this picture of the day thing where they take a picture of something that is going on in deep space.

this one time they showed a picture of two galaxies colliding. i thought that was cool
