Great view of the second stage seperating from the capsule. It's like watching a Star Wars movie.

So cool. We are doing it ourselves and not paying Russia for U.S. astronauts to hitch a ride to the Space Station.

We live 60 miles inland from The Cape so we get to see history happen everytime there is a launch. Haven't missed a launch since the first Shuttle launch in 1981.

OK. In the stash: Way too much to build in one lifetime...

We sat outside this evening looking out over the atlantic, it has been a gorgeous day and the sun was still bright and the sky was blue, so unfortunately we didn't catch a glimpse.

Unfortunately once again there was just enough clouds to block the view.  My neighbor a couple doors down was having a pool party when they launched.  I just walked out my front door.  I didn't see the rocket but the party goers were a bit entertaining.  They piled out of his garage and fenced in back yard and started looking around.  A few looked south toward teh airport saying they could see it and a few others asked what people were looking at.  It sounded like they had no clue and most likely didn't care.l

About five minutes later I was in the kitchen watching the first stage heading towardes the robot ship when I could hear the sound of the rockets rumbling through the area.  You cvould almost feel teh sound waves. 

It's been a long time.

Commentator on MSNBC made an interesting point.

Those of us born in the 50's were taken back to a time pre-Shuttle when this was space travel.

 Modeling is an excuse to buy books.

Got to watch this on Space.com this afternoon.  Interesting that they brought the capsule down in the Gulf of Mexico, off Pensacola.  I don't think any of the early spacecraft landed in that area.

Noticed that today on August 2nd, 1971, the first televised lift-off from the moon of Apollo 15 was broadcast.

Is it just me or do their space suits look like they came from some sifi movie?

Might as well look cool while you make history!
