It was obviously his first launch.

Right around the 2 minute mark gave me chills.... Everyone stopped talking and just listened. I imagine the only thing going through their minds at that point was HOLY $h*&.

I recently got to view Space Shuttle Atlantis' introduction videos and wow.. That's all I can say. If you're thinking about coming to Kennedy Space Center to see Atlantis, I say book your flight already, because you won't regret it. Kennedy Space Center Visitor Complex nailed this one.

Here are some pictures from yesterdays employee viewing of the exhibit.

I think it's the same shuttle piece, but it comes with other stuff like a Mars rover.

Did you know in the intro of BBT, for a split second, there's a picture of a Space Shuttle? Plus the Space Shuttle that's on Sheldon's shelf.

I need it.

I found it.

Everyone says this brand sucks though. Should've bought that massive Lego Shuttle when I had the chance.

No. Unfortunately.

But if everything goes as planned, Orion could one day be a possibility.

8 days until the Atlantis exhibit opens. Come see ATLANTIS!

Fun Fact: Atlantis' exhibit features a huge screen behind Atlantis that features HD footage of the Earth. While Earth passes between night and day, the lights surrounding Atlantis change to make the exhibit even more realistic.
