At 2:28 this afternoon space shuttle Atlantis lifted off and it was a beautiful launch. I wish I had photos to share with everyone. I try and watch all of the launches and can’t think of the last one I missed. I’ve always been a supporter of the space program along with science and education. It’s hard to believe that there are just a few more launches remaining before the shuttle fleet is retired (I think only five more remain). It hasn’t quite sunk in yet that I’ll never see a shuttle launch into space again after the fleet is retired. I’ve been watching the launches my whole life (my parents and I used to walk over to the golf course across the street to watch them) and I’ll be sad to see them go.
