The Space Shuttle is Away!

I just watched Nasa TV using realplayer and at 10:39a like clock work, the shuttle took off. That is engineering at it’s best.

Besides the take off, watching the shuttle peal off from the large external tank was amazing. There was a camera attached to the external tank to facilitate seeing the under side of the shuttle as the orange tank fell away.

Congratulations Nasa and Shuttle Crew! Welcome back to space.
