up, up, and away

April 17, 2012

i am most literally green with envy.  and covered with goosebumps.  because i missed the space shuttle discovery’s victory lap over d.c.

the shuttle, piggy-backed on top of a 747, made its last flight today.  it took off from cape canaveral early this morning to arrive at its final home at dulles around 11 a.m. today.  but on its way home, discovery decided to dazzle d.c. by doing FOUR loops of the national mall.  at 1,500 feet!  i could reach out and touch it…if i weren’t at work.

i.  missed.  it.

so i am hating on work and the reason i have to be inside, instead of out on the mall watching history, and watching the live stream from nasa t.v.
