Chance Meeting with a Space Shuttle

By Jimmy Rogers

Sometimes an airline passenger in the right place on the right flight really hits the jackpot.  At least, that’s what happened to this Air Canada passenger with a window seat.  He has the perfect view of a space-bound shuttle.  I suggest kind of clicking ahead a little every once in a while unless you are truly awe-inspired (it’s a bit long).

From what I’ve been able to gather, this is likely the shuttle Discovery on STS-124 (the mission’s official designation).  The purpose of the mission is to complete the Kibo space laboratory on the International Space Station.  Very cool!
