For years I have been watching the NASA website to try and figure out when we could be in Florida for a shuttle launch. Well, that never worked out, but today we did luckily get to see the launch of the Mars rover mission.
We went over to a city park near the intercoastal waterway and there was a wildlife observation tower. And as it turned out it was a great rocket launch observation tower as well.
Here is your NASA rocket scientist too.
