Space Shuttle Launch In Doubt As Fuel Tanks Are Filled And Where To Watch Last Space Shuttle Launch Online

Friday, July 8, 2011

NASA estimates that over a million people will be trekking to Cape Canaveral to see the launch this weekend--if you don't already have a ticket or are not already in Florida, you're probably out of luck. Up to 750,000 spectators are expected to watch the liftoff from the Space Coast area and the numbers may top one million. Don't worry though.

Ferocious thunderstorms drenched Cape Canaveral on Thursday. Lightning struck near the launch pad at 1 p.m., delaying for 30 minutes the retraction of the rotating scaffolding that encases the shuttle on the launch pad. More storms were expected today

It’s the end of an era," said Gifford, 38, a Windows engineer. "It’s kind of bittersweet. I understand the economics behind it; (the shuttle program) didn’t turn out the way the planned economically. I hope they come up with something better, more economical.".
