I grew up in South Florida and remember watching the shuttle go up (in the 80's) from my back yard. There was the usual media coverage, countdown,
interviews, etc., however, I distincly remember a few times where I would see the shuttle go up and there would be NO COVERAGe whatsoever about it.
It's hard to miss a large space shuttle shooting up in the sky. Does anyone who lived in that area remember this? Why would there be no media? I was
in 6th/7th grade approximately. I guess it's on my mind at this time due to the new launch.
