What a week.
Japan experienced one of the worst earthquakes ever recorded, plus a devastating tsunami.
Wisconsin has been the center of controversy as the Senate Republicans jammed through the union busting legislation amidst increasingly vocal protests. There seem to be no signs of this mêlée letting up.
Libya has become more violent with Gadhafi ordering air strikes on his own people and the US seriously considering imposing a no fly zone. The city of Zawiya has been recaptured from rebel forces. Gas prices are skyrocketing due to the conflict and over-zealous speculation in the markets.
On an historic note, Discovery made her final mission and safely landed in Florida. 39 missions, 365 days in space and 29 years of service caps the glorious service of the oldest of the shuttle fleet. Endeavour and Atlantis have one more mission each to go before the final chapter in the US Space Shuttle history is complete.
