Watching Bob and Doug start a new era of space exploration

We watched both on Wednesday, May 27 and Saturday, May 30 when it actually happened: the historic launch of Crew Dragon Demo-2, a commercial state-of-the-art aircraft, marking the start of a whole new era of space exploration for the whole of humankind. And then, 23 minutes after the launch, we rushed towards the balcony to watch them fly over Belgium, only to realize that it was too light outside… But we did get lucky the second time they passed! Exactly at 23:18, we spotted a little bright dot going from West to East, vanishing mid-way. It was a very memorable moment. #LaunchAmerica
