STS-128 Shockwaves

We were on hand for the incredible night launch of STS-128. The Space Shuttle Discovery took off just before midnight on August 28, 2009. It’s the 128th shuttle flight.

We did something a little different for this video, we were at a viewing point three miles away. The camera is on a very smooth surface. The result is a pretty awesome representation of what the shockwaves feel like.

Take the time to see one of the remaining shuttle launches, it’s an experience you’ll never forget. More importantly, if you have children, give them the experience of a lifetime, by taking them to a launch. There’s plenty of information on the best viewing points for a shuttle launch. Check out or for the schedule of the remaining flights.

ISDC 2009

Well, another year has gone by, and it’s time for ISDC. We’re on location here at the beautiful Omni ChampionsGate Resort.

Wait a minute, what’s that in the water?

A mock-up of the Orion crew exploration vehicle floats in the open waters of the Atlantic Ocean. NASA engineers are testing this 18,000-pound mock-up to learn what the crews will experience after Orion lands and the recovery teams begin their work. Three weeks ago, the mock-up was on display on the National Mall in Washington as it made its way from West Bethesda, Md., to the Kennedy Space Center in Florida. Image Credit: NASA
