    I follow a lot of NASA topics and even was lucky to photograph the last launch of Shuttle Discovery from the closest public viewing area.

    A college student at Purdue was selected as part of the Nasa social press pass. He wrote some great articles on how these launch photos are captured remotely by the pads with sound activated cameras and timers. Great reads.

    Follow him on twitter if you are interested in seeing photos like that.
