(my friend wants to be an astronaut, so that’s the only reason how I knew this, lol)

It was really cool to watch, though! Read about it here.

unfortunately WordPress is being OBNOXIOUS!!!! *insert really angry face here* and not letting me post this video directly into my post, so go HERE to see the awesome-ness! It’s a really short video – only 2 and half minutes!!

It was really cool to see the fuel tank fall off and everything! It goes soooo fast!

best quote: “Discovery’s three main engines are burning fuel the rate that we drain the average swimming pool in 25 seconds.”
