We are waiting for the take off of the Space X Rocket from Orlando, Florida. So far it has been delayed a few hours. This is one of the most powerful space crafts that was ever built. After it goes up it will return back where it started. There are hundreds of people all over Florida to watch this amazing challenge. We just have to go outside to watch it. Normally when the rockets go up down here we can hear the loud noise as well as feel the house shake. I cannot imagine this time. I hope the house stays standing.

I was surprised at how much public attention this rocket launch received. I guess it had a lot to do with how big the rocket was! I heard that the crowds at and around Kennedy Space Center were almost as big as the crowds for the final space shuttle launch. It's great to see that the public is still interested in space exploration and still supports our outer space missions! Elon Musk and the SpaceX program have certainly put excitement back in the people's hearts!

@moffittjc Right, I would hate to watch one that didn't make it. We have a friend that was an astronaut and was suppose to go up on the next one but they canceled the program then. I would be a wreck if I was married to him. That is a real scary job.
