Space Shuttle Atlantis rolls atop the crawler transporter out to launch pad 39-A at the Kennedy Space Center on March 31, 2009 in Cape Canaveral, Florida. Atlantis is scheduled for a May launch to repair the Hubble Space Telescope.

"In spite of the opinions of certain narrow-minded people, who would shut up the human race upon this globe, as within some magic circle which it must never outstep, we shall one day travel to the moon, the planets, and the stars, with the same facility, rapidity, and certainty as we now make the voyage from Liverpool to New York."

Jules Verne, From the Earth to the Moon, 1865
