For all of you who don't live in Florida, watching the space shuttle take off is breathtaking. I have always been fascinated by space and the fact that we have figured out how to get out there, stay there and return back safely is pretty amazing. I have seen 3 space shuttles take off....always from many miles away, but still a phenomenal experience each time. I have seen it from Disney World, the beach and my front yard, which is about 100 miles from Cape Canaveral Kennedy Space Center.
Last night my husband and I watched a LIVE feed of the astronauts returning to the shuttle from a space walk and shutting the hatch. It blew me away. If you have any interest in that, this page will have live shots from the space station/Atlantis mission. Under the Public Channel header, select Watch with Quicktime. Go here to get there. Have fun. See history.
