Thrust or Bust!!!! STS-133…


Okay, yeah I’m excited. I was idly wondering on Twitter whether I should take advantage of the fact that I had a free weekend that coincided with the next launch attempt of the space shuttle. Lo and behold, the fabulous @JahdavusRex mentioned he had 4 launch viewing tickets that he couldn’t use. One thing led to another, and there will be a car of four UVa Astronomy ladies heading down to see Discovery try once again to launch with mission STS-133!

I’m stupendously excited. So, if you are going to be at the launch, and at the visitor center viewing site specifically, send me a note and be sure to say HI! I’m also hoping for a little #SDOisGO reunion at Fishlips, as mentioned by Aleya recently.

More to come!

    “Thrust or Bust”, eh? Will there be bad 1970s porn music playing in the background during launch?
