"It was one of the most amazing things I've ever seen in my whole life. It was feeling the rumble on the ground and the ground shaking, just seeing the flames upon your eyes, it actually started to hurt and you had to squint a little bit because it was so bright," said Eric Gastanelli, a senior.
"I would have never guessed that I would be going to NASA as a teenager and just being able to produce real news stories. It was just unbelievable," said Gastanelli.
"We didn't realize it, but we set up right in front of NASA's cameras. We were on the NASA's cameras for the launch and we'll always be a part of the NASA history," said Gastanelli.
Eric says he plans to pursue a career in television news after this experience.
