The Space Shuttle Blasts by our House!

We were outside this morning on the lookout for the Space Shuttle Discovery.  We were so excited to have it fly by at tree-line!

Naturally we had to take a million pictures as it flew by!

A little while later we went inside to watch the drama unfold on NASA TV as it landed at Dulles Airport!

We talked a lot about the space shuttle program and watched the final launch of the Space Shuttle Discovery on you-tube.

It’s final 12+ day mission launched just over a year ago on Feb. 24, 2011. It flew 39 successful missions over a 27 year span.

You can watch the Discovery’s Final Launch here. The video is about seven minutes.

What an amazing homeschooling day!
