People gather to see shuttle in Hoboken; don’t know why

Once again, this Space Shuttle stirred up people living in the area to flock to the shores of the Hudson River to capture this supposedly historic moment.

I happened to be walking Hoboken411 Mascot Oscar through the beautiful campus of Stevens Institute when this all went down. Helicopters, boats, and all sorts of commotion (and expense – someone had to pay for this!) for this prototype of a space ship that never logged a second in space. It will be a money-making tourist attraction near the Intrepid Sea, Air and Space Museum now.

As you can tell – my life would have been the same regardless if I “witnessed” this event or not.

However, I did take one picture that I feel is worth sharing – and I entitled it “Shuttle Zombies,” because it reminded me of a scene from some sort of horror movie… “Ooooh, must see shuttle and update facebook… oooh… ahhh…”
