    The shuttle launch has been cancelled due to a fuel leak!

    If they can't launch in the next day or two they will have to wait until next month for the next window to open up.

    The space shuttle is off!

    Believe it or not, here in Englewood, FL, about 185 miles west from Cape Canaveral as the crow flies, we were able to see it take off! It went up in a huge column of twisting pink smoke, topped by an even huger cloud of white smoke that resulted when the boosters separated. Then you could see the shuttle itself heading eastward, as a point of white light, dropping lower and lower in the sky as it disappeared behind the curvature of the earth.

    Awesome!!
