    Endeavor's scrubbed launch 2/07/10

    Haha so my dad and I went to watch the Endeavor take its final night launch at 4am. We got there around 10. The news estimated that over a million people were coming to watch it! Buuuuttt due to heavy clouds, NASA scrubbed the launch 4minutes before it was supposed to clear for launching.
    Not sure when their launching it now. :( Only 4 more shuttle launches after this one and then the space program is closed. NOT MORE SPACE SHUTTLES!

    Anyway..from about 10 miles away or more, this was the best shuttle pad picture I could get.



    Me and my dad! Hehe he's a HUGE NASA lover.



    HAHA the traffic after they scrubbed the mission.





    Haha none of that traffic was moving for about an hour.

    Unfortunately, unless you come to the next 4 launches you wont be able too. Obama has called for a mandatory retirement of the shuttle program. After those 4, there are no more. :(

    It saddens me that there aren't going to be anymore launches after these next 4. I lived in Florida for the first 5 years of my life, my dad worked with NASA, mission control, and the Space Shuttle Discovery...it's a hard for me to imagine the shuttles becoming non-existent. I just need to come up with 12 million and I can buy the Discovery though!

    From what I understand, the Discovery was promised to the Smithsonian Museam. The rest are for sale at a recently cut, $23mil.

    Well crap, the one place I am more than likely never going to go. I heard 12 mil...but not that it really matters.
