The Challenging Enterprise In Which We Endeavoured to Discover Atlantis (We Drove Past The District of Columbia)
Last week I spoke about the trip down to Florida and promised that this week I would tell about the launch. Well they say a picture is worth a thousand word (which I suppose can be true sometimes) and I don't want to write a thousand words for each picture, so I will only write a few.
Before we could see the flames we saw the exhaust.
For 38 seconds I watched one of the most incredible things man has built ride a pillar of flame over 500 feet tall into space. There is really nothing I can say that will let you understand what it was like to stand there and watch this. If you where lucky enough to have seen a launch you know what I mean, if you haven't I am sorry.
