I received very exciting news this week - I've been selected to attend the NASA Tweetup for the launch of STS-134, Space Shuttle Endeavor's mission to the International Space Station, scheduled for April 19th.

Although I've already confirmed my attendance with NASA I have no idea how I'm going to fund this little unplanned excursion to Florida or if I can get the time off.

But if everything works out this will be the fulfillment of a lifelong dream to see a Space Shuttle launch.

Since becoming a teacher and a father I've found it more and more important to share my love of peaceful exploration, adventure, and technology with others.  I can't think of a better way to do that than through this event!

I'll keep you posted here as I learn more but for now here is a little tribute video I made for the Space Shuttle program.
