Re: shuttle launch



The launch was absolutely amazing!  This was my first launch and it was at
night.  I was lucky enough to be on a stairwell outside the launch control
center...which is about 3 miles from the pad.  I would encourage anyone to
make an attempt to see a launch....especially at night.
