Planetary Society and PCC host Atlantis launch viewing party

For a wannabe space geek, this was a must-do event. Alessandro and I headed down to the Crawford Family Forum to join other Planetary Society members and guests for a live viewing party of the last shuttle launch.  Atlantis took off with four astronauts in a picture-perfect launch.

Bill Nye the Science Guy an executive director of the Planetary Society was on hand to talk about the launch and other science projects.  Bruce Betts of the PS and Mat Kaplan of Planetary Radio were there as well.

For pictures and a first-hand retelling, read "Being there with Atlantis".
