I’ve been out of the loop for a few days, and look at the cool stuff I miss!

Stefanie Gordon was on a plane heading from New York to Florida on Monday, May 16. She was fortunate enough to look out her window and see an amazing sight: the launch of Space Shuttle Endeavour.

The photo has since appeared in a plethora of news outlets, including MSNBC, Time, and CBS.

You can also see a short video of the launch by Stefanie on TwitVid. 

She has written about the experience and the ensuing media barrage of attention on her blog, ‘Not a Typical Girl’, which you should definitely check out. In short, the experience sounds quite overwhelming,

This whole viral situation has completely caught me off guard. I never thought anything of the magnitude my photo would have when I sent an innocent tweet moments after I landed in West Palm Beach. I am still in shock about it all.

Well congratulations to Stefanie for her internet notoriety. Hopefully it will lead to good things for her!

Keep those cell phone cameras handy, cause you never know…
