Sorry I haven't posted sooner...I got home safely, however, my computer crashed! I need a new hard-drive installed so I'll be off-line awhile(I'm at library now).
Anyway, I was able to see the Shuttle liftoff on 10-11-00 & it was spectacular!! Some of the comments heard around me..."Oh my God...Wow!" "Look at that!" "I had no idea it was that bright!" "Like a sunrise" "That's gorgeous!" "What a rush!" "It's unreal" . I had always thought it blasted off & went straight up. It actually made a "S" turn as it makes its orbital insertion. Like the Statue of Liberty, or the Grand Canyon, a Space Shuttle launch is a must-see!

P.S. Florian, I have a "limited edition" Discovery coin I would like to send you as a way of saying thanks. E-mail me with your P.O. Box & I'll send it when I'm on-line again.
