Today, April 12, 2011, marks the 50th anniversary of human spaceflight. On this day in 1961, Yuri Gagarin became the first human in space and the first to successfully orbit the Earth and land successfully.
Also on this day, 30 years ago, the United States launched Space Shuttle Columbia – the first orbital space vehicle designed for reuse, and further sparked my interest in spaceflight.
It’s been a while since I posted something so I thought I’d Just Do It, as they like to say (who is this mythical “they” anyway?).
Well it’s been a long couple of weeks. If you know me at all you know I wear my heart on my sleeve. I couldn’t have gotten through these rough weeks without my friends – ones I’ve know for a very long time, others I’ve only know for a few months but feel like I’ve know forever, and others I’ve never even met in real life.
I feeling pretty good now, and getting better everyday and it’s all because of my friends.
I just got back to Cincinnati this morning and had to go straight to work on 1 hour sleep, but it was ALL worth it. I got to experience the final launch of the Space Shuttle Discovery with some of my now life-long friends.
We also got to party a little bit and on Saturday night after the launch we threw a little post launch bash along with celebrating our friend @montsecor ‘s Sweet 16th. As they say, a good time was had by all.
I broke out the decks and our very talented friend @PaoloDy documented @Gawainreif and I jammin – he on his guitar and I’m on the tables of course.
The audio is from another video of mine on YouTube, but check out the video – IN 3D NO LESS!!
