3-2-1 Blast Off!

In Titusville, thanks to our friend Mark, we got to see the launch of a Falcon 9 rocket as part of the SpaceX Dragon program to resupply the ISS under a Commercial Resupply Services (CRS) contract with NASA.

We are told this wasn’t as ear splitting as a shuttle launch, but it was truly awesome!
