Weather Delays, But Atlas 5 Went Up Sunday!!!

Rhino is now officially in SPACE! We spent three days at the edge of our seats in the stands at the Kennedy Space Center, hoping for the weather to cooperate so that we could see our book launch in person, but alas (or should I say, Atlas) the wind blew us home. 

5...4...3...2...1...BLAST OFF! The Cygnus is now orbiting the Earth and will connect with ISS on Weds.

We had an amazing time and packed our three days full of Florida/Space adventures: Banana Creek viewing at the Saturn 5 site, a trip through a nature preserve, three days soaking up space stuff at the KSC, meeting Andrea Beatty (Rosie Revere, Engineer) and Patricia Tribe (Story Time From Space) and getting a personal tour of CASIS, which works with the astronauts on all the experiments that go on at the ISS. We also saw a live feed from the ISS in their control room (thank you Diane and April!). 

To top it off, we spotted eight gators, three river otters crossing the road and touched manatees at Bair's Boat Launch!!! We did Cape Canaveral up right and now we have a book in space, orbiting the Earth. Mind blowing. Thanks so much to Patricia Tribe, the creator of Story Time From Space, for making this happen!

Oh, and NASA ROCKS!!
