Where is it? Where is it? There it is! Cheer!!! It’s gone: My Launch Experience of Endeavour STS 134

My launch experience…there were lots of clouds so I only saw about 4 seconds of the shuttle…but it was still awesome and the sound and feeling of the shuttle blasting into space was so amazing! Below is the email and picture I sent to my mom (who was over at the NASA press site during launch) – the picture shows the 4 second window we saw.

General crowd: where is it? Where is it? There it is! Cheer!!! It’s gone.

    Bummer about the clouds, but that had to be an incredible 4 seconds. I showed the CNN video of the blast off to each of the social studies classes on Monday. We were all wondering what your experience was like. I jokingly told them you were a stow away. Have a safe trip back.
