Seeing a rocket launch!

Danielle and I met in March at a NASA Social. NASA Social is a program where regular people are invited to come to a NASA location- for ours, the Kennedy Space Center- to learn about some of NASA's work, and if you're lucky, see a launch. We got to see the Orbital ATK OA-6 cargo resupply mission take off for the International Space Station and learn about some of the science involved (and what astronauts eat!). Plus, we got to see some of the preparations for the upcoming manned flight programs, like where the Space Launch System will be assembled (the big building), the boosters that will go on the SLS, and the crawler, the gigantic, tank-like vehicle that moves the assembled spacecraft to the launchpad. And, of course, the launch itself!
