Discovery's Final Launch

7 years ago

As a young girl, I was a dreamer, and believed in endless possibilities! It was dreams of being a marine biologist, astronaut, anthropologist that made me want to learn about the world around me, dreaming up at the stars, and charting my next adventure into unknown territories.

It was this past week that I was able to get as close to the stars as I could ever imagine. The moment we learned we would be in Florida, at the same time Discovery would make its final launch into space, we decided not to miss the opportunity of a lifetime.

On February 24th we drove from Orlando to Titusville Florida to watch Discovery make its final voyage into space.  My children, husband, and I were ecstatic to be there as we waited patiently in the park with hundreds of other people from all over the states and world. We met people from Baltimore, Mississippi, North Dakota, New York, Michigan, and Ireland. It was amazing to see this ship’s final voyage  bring so many people together on this one extraordinary day.

We had front row seats at the event and were able to watch a clear view of Discovery’s blast off. It was a once in a lifetime experience that my children, husband, and I will always remember.
