Whoever saw the Discovery shuttle launch at the Kennedy Space Center knew how awesome it was, even if I was miles and miles away, in Canada, watching on CNN. That shuttle launch was amazing. The countdown we shouted at home was suspenseful, and when the booster rockets flared up, I saw history. Ish. I'm not sure if the shuttle launch was really that impressive, because I never see them, but I read that the launch was the most impressive that Nasa has ever seen, and it was pretty awesome. I can only hope that after the launch problems that delayed the flight, there will not be any problems in space for the mission, and that the extra solar pannels and new waste management systems get installed correctly and without a hitch.
Good luck, NASA!
Until next time, W
