Shuttle launch days are exciting days around our house. I love watching the shuttle launch. And my boys love it as well. At this point, there are 2 minutes till the shuttle launch and I find it very appropriate that we should be sending the shuttle back into space on the 4th. I know that there are many people doing it — but I pray for a safe trip….
And they are off. The entire house is watching the shuttle as its fly. At 4 minutes — a guess of ~5000 mph and 60 miles of altitude. Very cool.
