NASA officials are counting down the hours to the final launch of the space shuttle Atlantis. People from across the globe have gathered in Florida for the event including 41 NBC Reporters Kyle Warnke and Dustin Wilson. They’re bringing us reports from Kennedy Space Center as preparations for the final space shuttle launch get underway.
Kyle is following a Middle Georgia Science teacher who was granted special access by NASA to see what it takes to make the launch happen. Thursday Kyle spent the day following the Tweeter from Twiggs County. You can click below to watch Patty Cleveland "tweet" her way through this once in a lifetime opportunity!
Kyle and Dustin are three miles in front of the launch location and they tell us that’s as close as you can get, unless you're an astronaut of course! We'll continue to bring you stories from this historic event on 41NBC!
