Scrum and the Space Shuttle

I was fortunate to attend the Scrum gathering last week. It was held at the impressive Gaylord Palms resort in Kissimmee, Orlando. I arrived early and spent Sunday visiting Disney's nearby Epcot theme park.

Planet Earth at Epcot

Our evening cocktail party, hosted by the PMI, was interrupted to observe the launch of the space shuttle Discovery at Kennedy Space Centre, some 50 km East of Orlando. Just before the 7:43 pm launch time we gathered on an East-facing balcony to watch. This was to be the last night-time launch of the shuttle as we know it. We weren't disappointed.
