I was trying to think of something to draw that would be educational as well as fun. How many many times have you heard of a kid or teen say that they wanted to be an astronaut when they grow up? I must of heard this same statement at least twenty times from twenty different people I know in my family. I don't know why an astronaut is such a big career to set goals for, but I bet it's because astronauts have a job that allows them to travel through space, and see the universe at first glance. Today, I thought I would make a lesson that will teach all you aspiring future astronauts, "how to draw a space shuttle", step by step. I was at the NASA website and saw that there is five space shuttles; space shuttle Atlantis, space shuttle Challenger, space shuttle Columbia, space shuttle Discovery, and space shuttle Endeavour. No matter what shuttle it is, they all lift off from the Kennedy Space Center launch pad. One of the most exciting things to witness when a shuttle begins lift off is the powerful balls of smoke and steam. As the shuttle begins it's journey, it leaves a trail of bright flames and heavy thick smoke. Typically a space shuttle can carry an astronaut crew of six or seven depending on the task at hand. I have never personally witnesses a liftoff, but maybe one day I have the opportunity to see a shuttle eject itself up into our universe. I hope you have fun with this lesson on "how to draw a space shuttle". I may or may not be back today, but whenever I do return there is going to be a trail of more drawing fun behind me. Peace out people!
