Whirlwind Trip to KSC

This weekend, I took a trip to NASA's Kennedy Space Center (KSC) for work. It was a quick trip, but an exciting one. For every Shuttle flight, we make a couple of trips to KSC for equipment testing. The reason I titled this "Whirlwind Trip to KSC" is because I left Houston at 8:50 am on Friday, spent ~12 hours at KSC that day and got back to Houston at 4:00 pm on Saturday. For this trip, we were on the launch pad so I got to see the Shuttle in its vertical position and we worked in the payload bay area. Check out the pictures in the photo album including a couple of me in my bunny suit. You'll probably notice some spots on the external tank that are lighter in color. This is where they repaired the hail damage that originally delayed the launch.
