Shuttle Launch (24.02.)

About 3 hours before the launch Chris, Megan, Henrieke and me went to Titusville to see the Shuttle launch from about 7 miles distance. Even though a nail that got somehow jammed into the tire made things more complicated, we made it in time well before tha launch. We found a nice place to view the launch from with many other shuttle nerds around.

Exactly on time, the shuttle launched, and a few seconds later we got to hear the loud engines and see the bright exhaust and after a minute the shuttle was out of sight already. It was AWESOME 🙂

After the launch we went to a restaurant for 3 hours to avoid the worst of the traffic jam, and even after that we were stuck in the traffic jam for a long time.. ALOT of people went to see the launch apparently.
