EXPLORING SPACE - FOR ALL MANKIND
-----------------------------------------This blog is to proliferate space travel and exploration to people the world over, in an attempt to inspire a sense of awe and wonder into mankind's greatest accomplishment - the exploration of the stars.---Currently at NASA HQ in Washington DC. I write the NASA History Facebook and Twitter posts.
----------------------Passionate about spaceflight since the age of two, I live and breath rockets, NASA, and anything space. I also enjoy Florida History and World's Fairs. I'm an avid explorer, and I'll occasionally post images from my travels.--------------

Remember folks that life in space is far from easy. There are any number of things that could go wrong, and an equal amount of hazards that one must be wary from. In this case, a small micrometeroid or space debris. 
Also, it’s interesting to note the degradation of the solar panels after all these years, as seen by the large amount of torn/missing foil.
