At 8:56 AM this morning, in Cape Canaveral, Florida, as the space shuttle Endeavor lifted off for it's last ever flight, history was made. Jimmy and Wilson, in their digital embodiments, rode along with the crew of the Endeavor! It was a tense and very exciting few minutes as the shuttle cleared Earth's atmosphere, and my two Cardigan Welsh Corgis headed on their way to the space station.
There's still time to join the crew today (until midnight tonite) or plan ahead and join the crew of the Atlantis with it's tentative launch date of June 28th. Just go to NASA's Face in Space and follow the instructions to upload your Cardis, your kids, or even yourself! It's hard to pass up a free ride on the space shuttle, especially the historic final flights of these space crafts.
Hey, let's try to get a Cardi Party in Space going! What do you say?
Special thanks to George the Ladd who flew on a previous mission and posted about it. I would have missed the ride otherwise.
