Final Space Shuttle Flight, Atlantis Mission STS135, Kennedy Space Center, Fla., July 21, 2011

Attending opens in a new windowNASA Tweetup for the Endeavour launch in April and May was amazing. Viewing the opens in a new window final space shuttle launch EVER was incredible. Invited to watch the opens in a new windowspace shuttle landing was an honor and humbling.

This week’s Wordless Wednesday post is this video of opens in a new windowAtlantis’ landing on July 21, 2011, at Kennedy Space Center, Fla. I admit the video isn’t great at all – it’s mostly of darkness, but I love the audio. It still gives me goosebumps listening.

To add dimension (and hide my poor video skills) I incorporated tweets from some of the NASA Tweetup participants along with other tweets with the #NASATweetup tag.

Again, thanks to Eileen Ludwig of opens in a new windowFreelance Tourist: Travel Tips for the invite.
