Launch of Shuttle Discovery from the Deck of SANDY HOOK

No! We didn’t actually launch a Space Shuttle from our decks but it surely FELT like it!

None of us will ever witness this piece of history again as Discovery started her 39th and final mission. Wow! Now that she’s back on earth after a successful mission, Discovery may find her way to the Smithsonian Air & Space Museum in Washington DC. Take a five minute trip with us and watch our video. It’s the next best thing to being there!
