    I was very happy to see they didn't have many problems this time. They even got off the ground on the first try! :)

    Yup - - I thought of that at +00.06 into the flight LOL As soon as they cleared the tower :D But i watched it until the External Tank separated :) Just to be sure!!!

    I was really suprised to see it got off the ground, let alone didn't do a back flip just because of the mas of that module. It is humongous. Good thing it is up there now. I have pictures from KSC of these modules at the SSPF. Unfortunately only 10 more Shuttle flights left though. I really want to go see one before 2010. anyone have any tips as per byeing tickets for a launch and not wasting the money on a scrub? I hope I get to personally view one.

    yup - -We felt the same way when the Apollo program ended... It was a double edged sword.. No more launches and no more moon landings.. :cry::cry::cry:

    hehe..the closest we can get to being a part of a shuttle launch is the Shuttle Launch Experience down at KSC. It was a great ride and very informative. :D
