Carroll pilots visit Florida for shuttle launch

Six members of the Carroll Composite Squadron, Civil Air Patrol and other CAP members, recently viewed the launch of space shuttle Columbia and toured the Goddard Space Flight Center in Florida.

Cadets Jason Zabetakis, Nichole Zabetakis, Keith Wickstrom and Victoria Karolenko, with senior members Michael Zabetakis and Donald Zabel, were guests of Doug Barth, also a CAP member.

The group watched the launch from the control room at Goddard. Columbia, the oldest and heaviest shuttle, made its 28th flight and the 113th shuttle flight overall.

The flight was the first scientific mission in three years.

Among the crew was the first Israeli astronaut, payload specialist Ilan Ramon.

After the launch, the CAP members were taken to the center where work on the Hubble telescope is performed. The center is used to test components for Hubble and prepare other satellites for launch.
