Early this morning, Chris and I loaded up his sister, Annie, and Bean Man and we drove an hour outside of Orlando to Cape Canaveral for the Discovery shuttle launch. It was really awesome. It would have to be in order for me to get up at 4:00 AM.
We brought you guys along with us because misery loves company. Now, the video is kind of long, but be sure you at least stick around to hear the sound that the shuttle made when it took off. It was AMAZING. Also, be sure you watch long enough to see me fall into a hole while I’m filming. Good times.
After the shuttle launch as we were driving home, we passed these clouds left by the gases the shuttle gave off. Isn’t pollution pretty?
So, all things considered, not a bad way to start the day. Not that I want to do this every morning, but it was worth it to see that happen. Especially when the NASA space program seems to be on its way out the door. At least I can tell Bean that he saw one of the last shuttle launches. And that he squealed like a little girl during take off. I’m sure he’ll appreciate this story when he’s about sixteen…
