Before moving to Cocoa FL, I never had much interest in the space program. I never had dreams of becoming an astronaut, finding martians, or exploring other galaxies. When I was in Girl Scouts (and my dad was our leader), our troop made a plaque for the first teacher in space, Christa McAuliffe. But now that I live less than 10 miles from the Kennedy Space Center, I am beginning to develop a fascination for the shuttle program. I have been to several launches and they are just amazing. You can feel the shuttle take off....even the walls in my house vibrate a little! With only a few launches remaining, I'll be sure to catch every one.
