I missed Woodstock (darn!), but I was on the beach near Cape Canaveral
to see that first shuttle launch(Geek Woodstock?) in person.  Even so,
I was still seven miles away.  It was weird.  It took 35 seconds for
the sound to reach where I and the gathered multitudes were,
well,...gathered.  That is the launch was completely silent until 35
seconds in.  And then came the second surprise, because seven miles
away it was still the loudest sustained sound I had ever heard.

Best, Jeff Davis
