Although it's the last night launch, it's actually not the last Space Shuttle launch.

Anyway, here's a 7-minute tour of ISS that shows, among other things, how to store lenses up there, you can just hang them on the wall. (At about 2:50 in the video.)

I love when photographers put a lot of effort into a shot, it shows, and the shot is actually good.

Compare that to how we thought it would happen in the 50's, and yes I was there to see this on the big silver screen.  Back in those days you always had to be ready for a Meteor Storm!
ISS a la George Pal

That is too cool.  In space no one can hear  you over act.

Love this image ...
