Our good friend Leland Melvin went up in space today aboard Atlantis(STS-129), congrats to him and the entire crew on a beautiful launch. This is Atlantis’ 31st mission since it started visiting space in 1985. This is also the first time that the shuttles has 2 African Americans on board for the same mission. We have a little surprise for you guys after the mission is over!!!!! Can you guess what went up in the shuttle today?
Shuttle to the shuttle:
The Gators watch the launch as well
Saturn V rocket which took man kind to the moon
This early space suit looks straight out of a movies from the 50s
The fumes can cause acid rain and if the winds change you have to head for cover in a hurry.
