Pillar of Suns

The sun rose twice at the Kennedy Space Center this June 8, as Space Shuttle Atlantis began its mission to the International Space Station. Atlantis took off right on time into a clear beautiful sky, with a flame so bright it was hard to look at.

I was down by the countdown clock and flag. Picture perfect. Wow. Thanks to National Geographic’s Susan Poulton for this great shot.

Tim Bailey was down at Banana Creek. We’ll share our experiences with some special guests and surprises next week on the Space Task Force Podcast.

Don’t forget Episode 7 just below these shuttle posts and also right to the right of this post. Frank Miller talks about World Space Expo – and Nicky Jordan talks about the 2007 X PRIZE Cup.
