Discovery's been given the green light to launch. T-minus 3 minutes and counting...

These launches never cease to inspire.

CNN was 30 sec ahead and all, but the NASA channel doesn't have all the talking heads competing for air time.

Truly, my pleasure. I've followed the space program from its infancy. All my school reports were about space missions and spacecraft facts.

Yes, and I find it a very unsettling thought to realize our country will be without any means of orbital transport of humans until at least 2014 when Orion is projected to be ready. With the present state of the economy, I wouldn’t be surprised in the least if 2014 turns out to be a somewhat over-zealous projection.

okay, for only twenty million...
Times are tough. Look for a discount at Travelocity. Maybe get William Shattner to broker you a better deal with Priceline?

(Though as a personal preference, I'd recommend against steeply discounted space travel. Especially with the Russian carriers.)

I remember some astronaut describing the Russian space station as being like a run-down old school bus.
