Antares Rocket Launch

Antares rocket launch from NASA’s Wallops Range, Wallops Island, Virginia

My wife and I took a ride down to Wallops Island this weekend to watch the Antares rocket launch from the NASA launch site at Wallops Island range in Virginia.

It was our first time to Wallops to watch a launch, however we did see a nighttime launch from our home a few hundred miles to the north in Pennsylvania, USA.

Lots of people gathered and were not disappointed as we all witnessed a flawless launch on a beautiful but windy day.

The Antares rocket, owned by Northrop Grumman, was loaded with eight thousand pounds of resupplies for the international space station (ISS).

This enthusiastic future astronaut was very excited to be present to watch the launch. It was inspiring to meet him and his parents and I couldn’t help but think of my own children when seeing this young man in his space attire, understanding first hand how important it is to support and encourage our children’s creativity.

It will take the Antares two days to catch up and rendezvous with the ISS which at that time, astronauts with ‘catch’ the vessel with the extending ‘Canada’ arm and retrieve the payload.

Merry Christmas/Great Weekend

Wishing you all a Merry Christmas or simply a great weekend if you don’t celebrate Christmas, either way, hope all is going well with you all.

My thing to do since I was a young kid…get up before everyone else, turn on the tree lights, kick back and appreciate it all, give thanks for the people in my life, past and present, and remember the ones that are no longer here…

Merry Christmas, Everyone!

The Silence Of The Night

Up all night…sleep all day?

Tried to sleep but decided instead to make a quick podcast and say hello to you all!

When the sun came up I took a walk in the front yard, leaves are falling all around, temperatures beginning to feel fall-like, feeling good, feeling motivated, feeling inspired.
