AIMM_TRIVIAWho is the only U.S. President to be present at a Shuttle Launch?

Answer:¬†Only one president has been on hand to witness a space shuttle launch….

President Obama had planned to watch the shuttle Endeavour lift off on its final mission STS-134, on April 29, 2011, but that launch was delayed. The President and his family did visit the spaceport anyway.

The correct answer is President Bill Clinton. President Bill Clinton, along with his wife Hillary Clinton, watched Mercury astronaut John Glenn’s return to space on the STS-95 flight on Oct. 29, 1998 from the Kennedy Space Center in Florida.
