i'm curiose. were does nasa get the funds for all these launches? is it taxes? grants? i understand they have good reason for them but it just seems like they are doing alot of launching lately. on another note when i lived in florida i could see a shuttle going up once. very cool. the radio was playing rocket man for added affect. then i heard it break the sound berriar on re-entry. scared the crap out of me, i was asleep.
we were at sea once off the coast of florida and watched the launch through the periscope. We taped it onto our VHS system that was tied into the scope and played it via CCTV for the crew to watch. Was impressive!
