A very exciting year is coming to a close, and we all at the CIC would like to wish our visitors a happy holidays. It's amazing how many Wingnuts have been stopping by IRC, posting to the forums and visiting the site - even on Christmas day. Marc put together this awesome Christmas tree to share with everyone. The Confed star on top is a great touch!
Also check out a few of the neat holiday things that fans have put together in the past.
The Space Shuttle Discovery ended its 13-day mission earlier this weekend with a beautiful twilight descent in Florida. Here are some shots of the landing. With three successful flights completed this year, NASA plans five more missions in 2007.
