Post Just happened to be in the neighborhood - SpaceX Dragon
A friend of mine, who prefers not to be named, sent this photo he took while driving by launch pad SLC-40 - Space Launch Complex 40 at Cape Canaveral. This was after SpaceX had scrubbed the first launch and was preparing for the successful second try. The privately funded Dragon capsule arrived at the International Space Station on Friday, May 25, making history as the first private supply delivery to the ISS.

Photo taken on 5/18/12 at 20:00 Cape time. (Waving thank you for the photo.) The road sign is quite fun, too.
