Final Days of the Space Shuttle Program

YouTube Preview Image
There are only a few more launches of the space shuttles before the shuttles are retired for good.  On February 24th Space Shuttle Discovery will make its last flight into space. Discovery made its first trip into space on August 30, 1984 and is the most flown space craft in human history.

I was lucky enough to see Space Shuttle Atlantis launch on May 14, 2010.  It was impressive to say the least!  I wish we could have been closer. It approved, it will make its last trip into space in June 2011.

Check out the above video to see what it was like to be watching from Jetty Park Beach, Florida.
