As a brand new year approaches, It's the time for making year-end lists, so here's Space.com's contribution for 2011. Russia's TMA-03M Soyuz spacecraft (pictured at right) blasted off just today - December 21 - with three astronauts aboard and headed for the International Space Station. It wasn't included in this year's list. Cool photo nonetheless.
