Tonight, my boys and I watched as a space shuttle blasted off and went up into space. This space shuttle, we learned was headed for the space station that is circling the Earth. Did you know it circles the Earth once every hour? I learned that by watching it one afternoon on and off as I did my chores. There is some pretty cool stuff to be learned about space exploration!

I am also on Twitter, and receive updates and info from NASA, on there. So, they give me info when something cool is coming up, like the launch.
So, free (well, besides paying for Internet) and it holds a boy's attention and gets their brains going on what it would be like to be an astronaut... Check it out! You won't be sorry!
PS- Thursday & Friday they hav space walks scheduled, MAYBE they will be showing those (live) on the NASA TV! We will be watching for it!
