You don't need new glasses! It's sort of fun how the thumbnail selection caught a transition!
Joanne Manaster, @sciencegoddess on twitter, and creator of the website, Joanne Loves Science, shares her excitement on being chosen for the historic last shuttle launch targeted to take place July 8, 2011.

NASA will bring together 150 Twitter followers to NASA's Kennedy Space Center in Florida for a two-day Tweetup, July 7 - 8, 2011, for the final launch of Atlantis before the space shuttle program is retired. Joanne has been selected as one of 150 @NASA Twitter followers to attend and Tweet the event. Atlantis is targeted to launch on July 8 at around 11:40 a.m. EDT on mission STS-135 to the International Space Station.
