One of my big goals is to see a space shuttle launch before NASA kills the space shuttle program.  While I have always wanted to see it from the ground, one flight from Orlando had the amazing opportunity to be flying in the skies near the launch site at the time of the final Space Shuttle Discovery launch and got to see the shuttle take off from an amazing aerial view.  One passanger managed to record the launch and posted it online.  The captain’s comments are pretty funny during the video too.  I have posted the video below.
