Well, sort of. Alberto Saldamando of El Mundo Tech covered the liftoff of Space Shuttle Atlantis (writing for Piensa Digital) and brought his AR cards and 3DS with him. These pictures are not as clear as one would hope, but it is still a good piece of history to show just how far we have come with technology since the beginning of the space shuttle thirty years ago.
In these pictures, Saldamando has Mario by the shuttle assembly building on the space coast in Florida (just a short drive from my family’s home!) I wish that I could have been in attendance to see and talk to Saldamando, but there were over a million people in my small hometown, so getting through traffic was impossible.
However, his idea was definitely wonderful and the pictures will be cherished for years to come.
