This afternoon we watched and listened to the launch of the space shuttle on the computer via NasaTV (who even knew that there was such a thing – I don’t get out much I guess). It was actually pretty cool and very amazing that in the space of 4 minutes this shuttle was completely in space. We were able to watch the whole thing from many different angles including one on the outside of the shuttle itself which gave some pretty neat shots of it going up and into space, watching the earth fade away. The shuttle mission is scheduled to make repairs to the Hubble Telescope. Interestingly, one of the astronauts is going to send twitter updates – it will be the first twittering from outer space. He is @Astro_Mike and should be pretty interesting.
