See a space shuttle launch, Florida
Feel the earth tremble, the heat of the blast and hear the thunderous roar as a space shuttle takes off from Florida’s Kennedy Space Centre. If this is on your list of things to do before you die – you had better get your skates on. The shuttle program is in doubt beyond 2010. There are six shuttle launches planned for 2009. Keep track of dates through the Nasa website. Then try out the visitor centre’s new simulated shuttle launch attraction to imagine yourself part of the action.
