Watched the launch from my front yard.
Yes, while truly impressive, it was like a toy compared to the Shuttle launches.
Also went to the Space Center a while back and they get you in to a theater for a short film then open the screen and there before you to marvel at and check out is the Shuttle
Atlantis. Truely Amazing.
My son and I visited the Space Center on his birthday, which happens to be Jan 1st. So we got to see the Atlantis, along with the Space Center’s secular holiday show.
We’re planning another Orlando trip in January (but after his birthday). Of course we will see the Space Center again.
The Falcon 9 engine launch vehicle alone is an apples and oranges comparison with the shuttle launch system. Add the two extra Falcon first stages in a strap on configuration for something comparable on configuration.
