shuttle Atlantis lifts off in the distance
Had a good time with Jaye in Florida. Played some mini golf, and had one fun evening after meeting up with Zach and some of his friends.

Being at the shuttle launch was amazing. Pictures can't describe the exhilirating sensation of Being There. In the age of Hollywood special effects and sci-fi, it's easy to forget what an awesome accomplishment space travel is, and the Kennedy Space Center does a good job of reminding people how important it is for humankind to keep reaching for the stars. Space exploration has led to beneficial scientific discoveries in many fields, and thrives on a peaceful spirit of international cooperation. For the sake of future generations, we shouldn't forget that astronauts are Big Damn Heroes.
