The day before launch, I chatted with the guy in the Snack Mobile. "I saw the Columbia's lift-off from here; but, they've never come back. Shuttle does have to come back because we are always waiting for them to cheer," he said. I was moved. Yes, those who have someone waiting for you with cherished love are beautiful. People who have the place to come back are wonderful. In the America's Spaceport, the truck represents my feeling toward the seven bravest astronauts. Go Discovery! We are behind you!!

I like the NASA Snack Mobile;
Food, Beer, Florida Sunshine, and a Space Shuttle launch make for a perfect afternoon outing in my book.

I rate this picture 5 stars because I think it is just beautiful with the space shuttle taking off. I also because I want to thank the astrounots for what they do and thank theme for risking their lives.

Absolutely breath taking. A very emotinal moment indeed after Columbia (STS-107) in the memory of her fallen crew. I wish I was there to feel the ROAR and power of those rockets.

Awesome timing in relation to the smoke clouds, good colour. Might be better if the cars and stuff in the foreground were missing, but otherwise.. :) It caught my attention straight away
