The Little Bat That Could

For those of you who haven't heard, when the space shuttle Discovery was launched on March 15th, a small free tailed bat was holding on for dear life to the external fuel tank. He held on through launch but probably perished soon after. A wildlife expert who examined video of the bat says he likely had a broken wing and a problem with his wrist or shoulder. Internet speculation is that the brave little creature dreamed of flying again. Some save he bravely went where no bat has gone before. Either way... He will be missed.

Farewell and Godspeed, you brave little bastard...
