We used to live near Orlando and watched many space shuttles. It never got old.I miss Tampa. I lived there from 2008 to 2014 and loved every minute. Before that I lived about 2 hours north of there when I was a kid. I went to the 2nd to last shuttle launch and toured the space center. It’s an awesome place
Our first trip to the space center - many many years ago - we took our kids. Back then it wasn't so crowded and they would take you out pretty close to the space shuttles on the launch pad. We were up close and personal to the Challenger. I wish it didn't become so famous. All the best for our new crew. May they return safely.
