Every time we throw a coin into a fountain to make a wish, Elliot always wishes to go into space on a rocket. It’s a pretty cool wish, and in his lifetime maybe more possible than it has ever been for us. Anything rocket related is pretty cool, so when my husband spotted this amazing video online, we streamed it to the TV and settled in to watch as a family.
It’s an incredible clip pulled from the video cameras attached to the booster rockets on the space shuttle. You watch as they blast off and head up past clouds at breakneck speed and then peel off, one by one, and tumble back down to the ocean. The sound is all real as well. The clip is more than a year old, but what an incredible thing to see!
