    A fantastic journey begins with curiosity

    Good place to be.

    Ha! I grew up in Orlando, with an Uncle working at the Cape Canaveral (Later Kennedy Space Center).

    I saw all the Gemini, Apollo, and even a night time launch of the Space Shuttle (from only 3 miles away) . . . Besides seeing my kids born, it was the greatest sight of all.

    Back then, I would get the VIP tour, and even get to push the Fire Button in the block house. (of course nothing was hook up at the time!!!)

    The first launch of a manned space flight from US soil since 2011 was scrubbed, due to bad weather.
    Next launch window is this coming Saturday. May 30th, 2020.

    Second SpaceX manned launch attempt, on Saturday was successful. Seems the weather decided to cooperate this time.
    After a 19hr flight, the crew docked with and boarded the ISS.
