    Today is a big day for the Goode family. Mike will be going up with the shuttle today after over 10 yrs of waiting. So I ask that you all say a prayer for the astronauts that they return home safely.

    The shutle will be repairing the hubble, the mission is so dangerous for the astronauts, that they have a back up shuttle ready to go for a rescue mission.

    Good Launch. I would willing give my left (pick a body part) for the chance to take what must be the greatest ride in the world. Add on top a Space Walk or Two. The ultimate thrill. It is amazing that the news treats this as routine. Our Prayers go with them all. Go Atlantis:thumb:

    July 20, 1969 Keesler AFB. Appollo 11. Over the Wall and after Curfew. Out the gate and at the nearest Bar with a TV. Pitchers of Beer, Tater Tots, Walter Cronkite and everyone in the world watching. "TRANQUILITY BASE, THE EAGLE HAS LANDED". Every Launch brings that back.
