T - minus 5,4,3...

Met up with the News Editor of the Bulletin at about 4:15 am Saturday. We drove out to Hatch, climbed aboard buses and were taken to the viewing area of Spaceport America. A rocket was being launched that morning with the remains of Star Trek star James Doohan and Apollo 7 astronaut Gordon Cooper, along with a few other remains. The rocket launched and reached its pre-orbital destination before falling back to earth and landing at White Sands Missile Range. It was one of the more interesting assignments I have had lately.
