I’m a geek and that’s ok with me. Two weeks ago the boys and I sat at my desk and watched nasa.gov online tv of STS-127 Endeavour space shuttle lift-off from Florida. It was AWESOME! We watched the live coverage all the way until main tank separation and we’ve been keeping up with the mission since then.
We have the NASA channel at home and sometimes I just load the web page and leave it on all day. Almost two weeks later now we’ve seen a few space walks and the shuttle separate from the ISS (space station). Last night we stepped outside a little after 9pm and saw two brightly glowing objects zoom across our sky. The first was Endeavour the second was the space station (it was much brighter because of it’s solar panels). It was completely AWESOME! Both boys got a real kick out of it. Tonight you’ll be able to see them again a bit after 9:30pm. You should really check it out.
To add to our knowledge quest on space we launched our first Estee Rocket last week. It was AWESOME too! No really. It’s not like a toy, it’s so much cooler. We used up both of our engines so we must purchase more from the hobby shop and maybe another rocket to add to our arsenal.
I think maybe I was an astronaut in another life, or maybe I slighty missed my calling. So instead I’ll share as much real life AWESOME space adventures with my boys as I can. Next adventure two days in Concan with the boys and other family. Please let the water in the river be refreshing and not nasty!
