T Minus 4 hours to lift off!


#1

I’d better get the car loaded and get out the door already!!
Don’t want to miss the launch!
They’re shooting Buzz Lightyear into space on the shuttle today!


#2

Awesome, thanks for reminding us. We like to watch them on the NASA channel.


#3

Sounds great. I wish we lived close enough to experience this!


#4

You have a NASA channel? We don’t, or at least I don’t think we do. Got to go check that out. I would love watching that. Have fun Soundgod.


#5

yay, I wish you save travels and a magical trip :biggrin:


#6

We just watched the launch on CNN- can’t wait to hear about it from you!


#7

Godspeed Shuttle Discovery!

Now I’m off to watch The Right Stuff on DVD. I love that movie!


#8

Oh, dear! We missed it! It’s been a beautiful 90 degree day here, and we spent the day at our pool–we just got back in! I hate DS missed seeing the launch.


#9

go to CNN.com!

It says “T minus 4 hours to lift off” and his post now says “4 hours ago”. :laugh: I guess I’m a little late!


#11

Have a fun time Doug!


#12

I booked my airfare lastnight for September. 98 days and counting!


#13

Thanks! We got to watch it! Yay! I am always so amazed by the space shuttle. I remember when I was a child getting to watch the shuttle launches at school, and I wanted to be an astronaut! :laugh: That was before I realized how much math and science you had to take to become one!!:laugh: :laugh: :laugh:

The way I do it is this-when I’m not at Jetty Park or the 528 Causeway,I watch Central Florida News 13 or the NASA channel,and when I see the shuttle lift off,I open the side door of my house and wait to see the plume of smoke in the air. Usually I see it through the palm trees before it breaks through-and what a glorious sight it is!!!

NASA streams it on line as well.

I watched from S.R. 520 between Merritt Island and Cocoa Beach. Wide open view from the crest of the bridge. I almost forgot about the sound when about a minute after it lifted off when a rumble and a bit of a pressure wave went past us.
I was considering 528, Jetty Park, or even Cocoa Beach itself, but settled on 520 because I knew I’d be able to park.

Read the book sometime.
