Spiders, Urine Recycler Aboard for Space Shuttle Launch
The space shuttle Endeavor launched this evening with an odd assortment of cargo—including live spiders, butterflies, and new technology to turn urine into drinking water. We walked out to our driveway (along with a lot of our neighbors) and watched the shuttle go up! We have a clear view of it here, and could actually see it for a good long while due to such clear skies and darkness. It was emotional for me, as it is each time one goes up. I can always inagine how I might feel if I were aboard! WOW! I would love to blog from space!!!
