Searching For Sandbags
There were quite a number of celebrities that made the trip to see this launch, including Seth Greene, Levar Burton, some guy that used to be on ER, and most importantly… the President! Here are some photos of what we’ve been up to so far:
This is where we put one of Jook’s two fisheye cameras
Now, you see that sandbag leaning against the tripod? NASA actually requires that all cameras inside the perimeter fence have to be tethered to stakes in the ground, and weighed down by sandbags. But word quickly spread Thursday morning that NASA couldn’t find any of their sandbags! So all the different camera crews were stuck waiting for them to figure out what to do. We didn’t want to take any chances, so we actually drove to a hardware store, bought empty sandbags and a shovel, and made our own.
Despite the first family being here to see Endeavor, the launch had to be scrubbed because of an equipment problem. This is what the NASA Press Room looks like when we’re all trying to find out what is happening next.
