Just over an hour ago, I finally fulfilled a dream of seeing a space shuttle launch. I watched Endeavour’s last mission into space with a front row seat on the water’s edge of Kennedy Space Center’s press area, just little over 3 miles from the launch pad.

Seeing Endeavour light up, slowly lift (at least it appeared to be slow), then rocket into the sky was amazing. I can simply sum it off with a “wow.”

More about the experience will be posted soon. Thank you NASA for the incredible opportunity.

  1. Uhhh, yeah, wow! Really don’t know what else to say! That’s cool you went. I’m hoping to take the kids to KSC this summer, to coincide with the last shuttle launch.

  2. Awesome experience, I still get chills thinking about it! I’m going to try to make the last launch, too.
