Hello universe, and welcome to CNN's Light Years!
The space shuttle is making its final "sentimental journey into history." Despite all the arguments that have been made here on CNN.com about the logic of the program ending , we couldn't help but feel a tug as we watched NASA's final feat of this type.
Exploration, of course, does not end with the NASA shuttle program. We have created this blog to serve as a home for that wondrous curiosity about space, Earth and science. You'll find stories from the global CNN network here, from cells to Soyuz, fusion to fossils.
This blog is run by people who love space, science and technology. We're the ones who wax rhapsodic about rocket launches to anyone who will listen, and who bake pies on March 14 (that's Pi Day, for the uninitiated). We are constantly searching for new information on our favorite topics, and looking for people to share it with.
