Space Shuttle Discovery, Mission STS-120 - Orlando View

I took these pictures in October 2007 from Orlando (not Disney). I estimate the distance from the car park where I stood to the Kennedy Space Center was about 70 km or 43 miles in American distance. The experience was awe inspiring especially when I stopped to think that there were people in that space shuttle. It was the moment I became aware I didn’t have my zoom lens. It was also the moment I realized that potholes in Trinidad cannot be repaired because most of the technology needed to execute those repairs were tied up in space.

STS-120 was the 23rd shuttle mission to the International Space Station and there were seven astronauts onboard.
