Last night I saw my first night launch. Last night I saw the very last night launch. The moment was bittersweet in many ways. The first launch attempt was scrubbed due to weather so this was our second night out in the cold from 1am-4:30am. Everyone was tired, but the excitement carried us through. The only word I can use to describe the experience is 'overwhelming.' Night turned to day, and the center was bathed in the light of the explosion that put a crew of humans into space. We watched people go to space. Constellation might be gone, but this story isn't over. I'm still going to be an astronaut when I grow up.
