Lift off!!!

Written By: Gary on July 26, 2005 One Comment

The Space Shuttle went off as planned today. I was just finishing up at the doctor with two minutes to launch so took a few minutes to watch. It was a beautiful and thrilling thing to watch as always…

I watched until the solid rocket boosters and fuel tank had been disconnected and the ship was traveling over 17,000 mph (that’s almost 5 miles per second) I never get tired of seeing that.

    The shuttles are expensive, but they’re worth it, not just for the advances in science possible because of them, but because they lift our eyes up…
