good idea, the roads were packed with cars heading east. We drove until 4:45, the launch was scheduled for 4:50, so we pulled over. Shortly after 4:50 we heard the boom and then saw Discovery break into the blue sky, it was an exciting and historical moment.
Today we added to our education on the space program by spending a day at Kennedy Space Center, the highlight of the day was the two IMAX Movies on the Space Station and the Hubble Space Telescope. I have a new respect for the space program which will be changing its mission from the Space Station to putting a man on Mars and other space travel starting in 2012.
