Shuttle Carrier

august 21, 2005

I flipped over to the NASA channel on Dish because I ran out of stuff to watch and was bored. I am watching the Shuttle being "carried" back home on the back of a 747 and it is an amazing sight. I knew that the Shuttle went back home on the back of a 747 since my elementary school days and have always seen pictures of this, but I have never seen it happen. I am very amazed at the feat -- a 747 with a Space Shuttle strapped to the back of it slowly rolling down a runway then taking off. Wow!
