How to celebrate a 70th birthday? Carol and I both have serious head and chest colds and were basically comatose on her birthday. My birthay present to Carol was a concoction of Tylenol and Vitamin C every 6 hours for the full day.

I also purchased her some front row tickets to the SpaceX Falcon Heavy launch of the ARABSAT-6A satellite from Launch Complex 39A at the Kennedy Space Centre. We had just been there in March touring LC-39A and were awaiting the lauch eagerly.

This launch was very historical in that all three boosters used for the launch were recovered and will be reused. Videos of the recovery are amazing. It is something that I never thought that I would see.
